GLAM edit-a-thon at Preus Museum
Better coverage of Norwegian female photographers
Preus Museum is the national museum of photography in Norway. It is located in Magasin A at Karljohansvern in Horten. The Preus Museum exhibition program shows Norwegian and international photography and photographs, a combination of self-produced and borrowed exhibitions of national and international origin. Take a look at parts of their collection on Wikimedia Commons.
At the 26th of March our monthly GLAM edit-a-thon took place at Preus museum. We started off the edit-a-thon with a guided tour in one of the current exhibitions displaying the History of photography. The goal for the edit-a-thon was to write and improve articles about female photographers, Marie Høeg being one of them. With a group of 17 enthusiastic writers, both new beginners and experienced wikipedians, we managed to add both new articles and pictures to Wikimedia Commons.
