Obviously, cultural institutions are in bad situation and not just in
Bosnia, but in the whole region, at least. However, I think that this
is a kind of hard move to raise awareness about the problem.

Besides that, there are no Wikimedia goals in any kind of structural
help to GLAM institutions from the region. If they are aware of free
knowledge, they usually oppose to it, or, at best, they are not able
to articulate sensible decision because of their internal problems.
Every involvement should be carefully analyzed and just clearly
knowledge-liberating projects should be supported.
