Dear superb Wikipedians …

As most of you know, the GLAM WIKI conference is taking place at the end of this week in the Netherlands, organised by Wikimedia NL. The programme committee came up with the excellent idea of challenging all delegates that are attending - and anyone who wants to get involved remotely - to create or improve the articles about important cultural institutions in the “global south”.

To do this, it would be good to have a list of the institutions / cultural practices that should be featured in Wikipedia - and we need your help!! Please could you add the name of 2-4 institutions or practices in your country that you think are very important culturally and whose articles need either creating or expanding. Please put down your ideas for GLAMs that need writing about on this page ...

Thanks so much, and I hope to see some of you very soon!
