LSH upload; World Wide Wikipedia; Nationalmuseum
In their continous effort to contribute with all their material, LSH (through André Costa) uploaded 2 677 images. As the cooperation continues, there are now almost 40 000 images uploaded. Take a look through the categories to see if there are images you can put to use in some articles, or if there are any of the maintenance categories you can help clean up or take care of.

Presentation by Henrik Summanen at World Wide Wikipedia
As a follow up to the tour last fall where the Swedish Exhibition Agency and Wikimedia Sweden hosted a series of workshops focusing on writing about exhibitions, we have now included the National Heritage Board in a two day event called World Wide Wikipedia to be held in four cities in Sweden. On the first day there are presentations from Henrik Summanen, NHB, about new technology and new behaviours, from Lennart Guldbrandsson, long time Wikimedian, about what's going on back stage on Wikipedia and also from Sofie Jonasson, NHB, about Platsr. The second day is a workshop/edit-a-thon where participants can either learn how to edit and upload images or chose to continue editing with a helping hand close by. At the first event, hosted in Stockholm, there were around 35 participants the first day and 21 the second. The tour continues on to Umeå in June and to Malmö and Göteborg in the fall.
Following the data connection and upload earlier this year Nationalmuseum had a training day where staff got to learn how to edit Wikipedia. 18 participants created six new articles and edited another 20. They are planning to start regular workshops for the staff, and also to host a public edit-a-thon sometime in October.
