The media institute *Sound and Vision* launched in cooperation with the
Kennisland Foundation the initiative "Open Beelden" (open images), a website
with audiovisual collections that can be reused simply under a free license.
As a part of this, over 200 Polygoon items have been released under
CC-BY-SA. 16 videos have been uploaded already to Wikimedia Commons:
Nederland is working together with Sound and Vision to see how they can
continue to give an added audiovisual value to Wikipedia.
Small subsidies: Writing Contest
Wikimedia Nederland has awarded a "small subsidy" to support a writing
contest in the Dutch Language Wikipedia. Wikimedia Nederland has € 1000
available for requests from Wikimedia editors for small projects within the
goals of the association.
Free Cultural Heritage Conference
Wikimedia Nederland is planning to organize a one day conference on
Wikimedia and Free Cultural Heritage by spring 2010 to inform the cultural
heritage institutions and other interested about the possibilities and
advantages of making (digital) material freely available. The conference
aims explicitly to lead to follow up initiatives to make material actually
available under free licenses. We are currently working on finding
sufficient funding for the organization and contacting the right partners.
