Dear colleagues;

I am pleased to submit the following Chapter report for the potential Wikimedia CAT chapter:


Courses and lectures
*Saturday 5 June. "Let's make Wikipedia grow" workshop
in Biblioteca Districte 2, Sant Cosme, 157, Terrassa (User:Gomà)
of the pilot stage of the Viquilletra project, conducted jointly with
the Department of Education and the UOC. The model article is "L'amor
a Ausiàs March". (User:Barcelona).


*Wednesday 30 June. Meeting with the Museu
Nacional d'Art de Catalunya, with a cooperation agreement being
signed. Said agreement will draw inspiration from the experience
between the British Museum and Wikimedia UK. They will grant us
access to the museum, content about its works, images, etc. We will
also organise Wikipedia editing courses for the museum personnel. If
you are interested, please contact User:Kippelboy, there will soon be
many opportunities for activities.


Catalan Association of Shire Press has supported our Wikimedia CAT
application. Its members have contributed to spread aroung the news
that we have reached 250,000 articles.

"La Caixa" Welfare Project, studying various possibilities
for cooperation, including with the CosmoCaixa museums
*Thursay 17 June at 9:00 am: cooperation meeting with the
Institute of Catalan Studies. We asked for linguistic advice provided

this service may be difficult, they have to consider it, but there
was a good level of understanding and the desire to cooperate.
