Working group Cultural Heritage
A working group on cultural heritage has recently become active. The
group has made contacts with the Rijksdienst voor Cultureel Erfgoed
(RCE), which is the national organization for cultural heritage in the
Netherlands. As a result of this, the RCE has agreed to donate an
exhaustive database with the geographical locations and more metadata
of the over 60.000 national monuments in the Netherlands for use in
Wikimedia projects. The working group is currently processing this
data and inserting it into the Dutch language Wikipedia at a rapid
pace, so that it can be used in Wikipedia articles, but also in other
project such as Wiki loves monuments (a photohunt competition akin to
Wiki(pedia) loves art). As the group progresses, omissions and errors
that are found in this data can be corrected, and the improved data is
made available to the RCE again. The RCE has also offered to help in
answering questions that might arise when processing the data and when
writing articles on Dutch cultural heritage.
Working Group Copyright lobbying
With general elections in sight and a new European Commission in
place, two board members have taken the lead in setting up a working
group on copyright lobbying. As copyright legislation is under
reconsideration at various levels at this moment, now seems a good
time to try and influence these developments in a favorable direction
for free culture.
Wiki loves monuments
On the Dutch language Wikipedia, volunteers have been working on
creating extensive and complete lists of all national monuments in the
Netherlands, sorted by location. They also try to add for each
monument at least one photo under a free license. There are more than
60.000 monuments in the Netherlands, and to help get a freely licensed
photo for each of them, a photo competition will be organized. The
contest, Wiki loves monuments, will be organized in September by
Wikimedia Netherlands together with the volunteers from the Cultural
Heritage project. The general public will be encouraged to visit
monuments during that month and take photographs of them for use on
Wikipedia. Photos will be uploaded through a special project website,
and appealing prizes will be available for outstanding photographs.
Esther Hoorn participated the EDRi workshop in Brussels at begin of
February on behalf of WMNL. The workshop was about lobbying on a
European level, and aside from sharing her experience on copyright,
she has made some useful contacts.
Wiki loves Bieb
Together with the Public Library of Vlissingen, WMNL has initiated a
pilot project on media literacy and local cultural heritage that
should lead to a closer cooperation between Wikimedia and libraries.
The topic on media literacy will involve the development of
educational material for schools on the use of Wikipedia. For example,
the booklet "Wikipedia i skolan" (by Lennart Gulbrandsson) is being
translated and adapted from Swedish for use in Dutch education.
Board interest meeting & General Assemblee
To give candidate board members an opportunity to get to know the
association and each other a bit better, Wikimedia Nederland organized
a board interest meeting a few weeks before the elections at the
annual general assembly. Based on this meeting, they could then decide
whether they wanted to actually put themselves up as a candidate or
In March, the Annual General Assembly was held, and therefore also
elections for a new board. Four board members from the previous board
were re-elected and two new board members were elected out of eight
Dutch Government goes CC-zero
Although there is no direct involvement in this decision by WMNL, we
think it is good to mention that the Dutch Government launched its new
, in April under CC-Zero! This not only
includes the text, but also the images and video available on that
On the SPE Intelligent Energy Conference 2010 in Utrecht, board
members Hay and José gave presentations on how Wikipedia and Wikimedia
let people collaborate. Hay attended a conference on digitization in
libraries where he gave a presentation on free licenses and
Organized by the Institute for Network Cultures, this two day
conference about the academic study of Wikipedia took place in the
public library of Amsterdam on Friday 26 and Saturday 27 March. A
number of Wikipedia editors and WMNL board members attended the
conference. Videos of the sessions are available at this page.
