The Museum of the Cabildo y de la Revolución de Mayo, along with other GLAM institutions organized for the fourth consecutive year a meeting with cultural and professional organizations in Argentina and Chile. The same was held at Manzana de las Luces.
It was sponsored by more than 5 local prestigious institutions such as the Ministry of Culture, the University of Argentine Social Museum, the magazine Lucas of Leyden, among others.
During the congress it became clear that the Wikimedia projects could prove vital for the dissemination of the cultural projects to preserve the argentine heritage carried out in Argentina.
The Digitizing project manager of Wikimedia Argentina, Mauricio V. Genta, gave a brief talk about Wikimedia and its projects. Focusing on the two most critical projects for this community and attendees: Wikidata and Wikimedia Commons, we focused the subject in the importance of the work that can be achieved with Wikimedia Argentina as partner to highlight these institutions and their heritage for a common benefit.
