Kulturarv i Fri Flyt in Norway
Arts Council Norway in collaboration with the National Archives and The Directorate for Cultural Heritage hosted a Wikipedia day 26 November at Cinemateket in Oslo. Around 100-150 representatives from GLAM institutions around Norway attended and listened to presentations and asked questions. Wikimedia Norway were present at the venue to show Wikipedia and help users do their first edits as well as answer questions. WMNO vice chair Erlend Bjørtvedt talked about the cooperations and activites they have and also said that they are about to hire their first staff.
Sebastian Ter Burg from Wikimedia Nederland gave an introduction to ongoing GLAM activities in the Netherlands and Axel Pettersson from Wikimedia Sweden gave some hints on what GLAM institutions should do to be successful when they want their staff to be Wikipedians.
As a follow up to the fashion edit-a-thon earlier this year a series of edit-a-thons focusing on shoes kicked off at Nordiska museet in Stockholm on 12 November. Connected to this edit-a-thons is the Europeana Fashion Challenge, a month long contest where participants are awarded points based on expansion of articles and use of images coming from Europeana sources.
