GLAMing Madrid, Wiki Loves Earth and Carmen Thyssen Museum
In November, GLAMing Madrid project continued with three highlights to be mentioned. In this month were held seven Wikipedia training sessions open to the public in the three museums. As well, another three Wikipedia training sessions and talks were held for the staff of two of the museums, which received a high participation, mostly female.
After the problems of noise with the recording of the first concert of classical music in the Museum of Romanticism, this month two more concerts were recorded but without audience. From the first of them, ten files were uploaded to Commons and from the second one fourteen files were uploaded. Also, one of the musicians donated 20 more files, so in total it has been uploaded more than 40 classical music files to Wikimedia Commons. By last, it started the organization of a writing contest about the three museums to be held between December and January.
Wiki Loves Earth 2015 Writing Contest
From November 6 until December 6, a writing contest about Wiki Loves Earth 2015 in Spain and Portugal was run. It was organized by Wikimedia España and Wikimedia Portugal, and was part of the international photo contest Wiki Loves Earth held in May 2015.
