GLAM Project of the month is a page where Wikimedians can suggest month-long themes for collaborations with GLAM:s.

Suggest a new theme here[edit]

  • Claude Monet
    • Seems like a good subject to try the idea with. His works are public domain and widely disseminated, and he is popular throughout the world. Kaldari (talk) 23:48, 7 December 2012 (UTC)[reply]
  • Leonardo da Vinci
  • World War I anniversary
    • More specific example: Air combat in World War I
  • Funerary art in the late 19th Century
i.e. statues in cemeteries from 1850-1900
I submit that only Wikipedia could do this project well on an international scale!
I imagine it would be challenging to generate broad interest in this topic. Kaldari (talk) 23:48, 7 December 2012 (UTC)[reply]

Selecting a theme[edit]

There is a yet no established method to choose a theme, but there are a few good things to keep in mind:

  • it should be free in most countries
  • it should be something that exists in many countries
  • it should be GLAM-related, and the more areas it covers, the better
  • ideally interesting in many different cultures (not just European/American)
  • broad enough to involve many institutions, but limiting enough to be able to handle it and get your head around.
  • ideally cross-disciplines
