Swiss GLAM Program
Our 10th GLAM-On-Tour took place from the 24th to the 27th of November in Montreux. GLAM-on-Tour offers a unique occasion to bring the community in the GLAM institutions.
In partnership with the Cultural Heritage & Innovation Center and the Claude Nobs Foundation, we were able to offer a privileged access to the archives of the Montreux Jazz Festival. We welcomed 23 participants. They worked on the French, German and Spanish Wikipédia to create and better the content around the Montreux Jazz Festival, it's history, the town of Montreux, the artists who sang during the Festival and many more subjects. On this occasion, the participants also uploaded photos, available in the following category, and also worked on Wikidata. For more information about the work done (in French and German).
GLAM Wiki Group
On the 16th of November, Wikimedia CH organised the last meeting for 2022 with the GLAM Wiki Group. In Switzerland we implemented quarterly coordination meetings with our Swiss GLAM partners with the aim of fostering the networking factor between Swiss memory institutions and share experiences and knowledge regarding the Wikimedia projects and ongoing activities of Wikimedia CH and the Wikimedia Movement in general.
On this occasion, Wikimedia CH organised with the Main Library in Luzern a Wikisource atelier, offering the opportunity the explore and use this tool in the context of GLAM institutions. We also took the opportunity to wish Wikidata a happy 10th Birthday and celebrated around an apero and a delicious cake.
French WikiConvention 2022
A large part of the Wikimedia CH staff went to Paris for the French WikiConvention 2022. The French WikiCon was the occasion to meet and exchange with the French speaking community, Wikimedia France, Wiki Franca and also with GLAM institutions. Presentations were given by Swiss volunteers about existing projects, including a talk about the Map integration project on the website of the Swiss Archivist Association, currently ongoing.
