GLAM/Newsletter/September 2016/Contents/Spain report
We have carried out two Wiki Takes activities; the first one on the occassion of the International Paella Contest in Sueca (Valencia). The initiative goal was to document photographically the elements related to the contest, from the process of cooking paella to the final decision of the jury, and then upload the pictures to Wikimedia Commons. Also, we took pictures of the city, in this case the highlights.
The second one on the occasion of the 4th Wikimedia Spain Conference, held for three days at the Museum Pablo Gargallo, in Zaragoza. The first day we focused on free knowledge, software and data, with the participation of several local groups. The second day we attended the presentation of four projects by Amical Wikimedia, Basque Wikimedians User Group, OpenStreetMap Spain and Wikimedia Spain, ending the day with our VI General Assembly.
Finally, the third day, we celebrated a Wiki Takes Caesaraugusta, through which we visited and took pictures of four Roman Museums in Zaragoza: the Museum of the Theater, the Museum of Public Thermae, the Museum of the Forum and the Museum of the River Port.
