Heritage Wiki Days
European Heritage Days
Musée de Bretagne
A two days workshop and edit-a-thon was held at the musée de Bretagne (museum of Brittany) in Rennes for the European Heritage Days. There was a Wikimedia stand and a OpenStreetMap stand. Among the outcome was some import and improvement of data in Wikidata, some uploads of photos on Commons and interior cartography of the museum on OpenStreetMap. More collaboration are expected.
A conference about Wikipedia was held in the newly opened library of La Teste-de-Buch. Local Wikipedians hope that it will be the first step of a cooperation with local historians.
