Wikipedian in residence at the Association of Fine Artists of Serbia
The successful end of the second month of the Wikipedian in residence project at the Association of Fine Artists of Serbia marks a period of great achievement. Over this very productive month, a total of 304 new articles were written on Serbian Wikipedia. These articles give a good view of important exhibitions and biographies of esteemed members affiliated with the Association.
A total of 188 catalogs were digitized and uploaded to the Wikimedia Commons. This concerted effort not only preserves the rich history encapsulated within these catalogs but also makes them widely accessible to a global audience. By digitizing these catalogs, this project not only contributes to the dissemination of artistic knowledge but also reinforces the commitment to fostering an open and collaborative approach to cultural documentation.
As the second month draws to a close, the Wikipedian in residence stands as a testament to the power of collaborative efforts in enriching and expanding the cultural heritage documented online. The synergy between the Association of Fine Artists of Serbia and Wikimedia Serbia continues to be a beacon of progressive engagement in the realm of cultural preservation and dissemination.
