Dear all:

This is a gentle reminder to all wikimedians to attend the Bangalore monthly
meetup #27. The highlight of today's session is a invited talk by Lodewijk
Gelauff from Wikimedia Nederlands.

The talk will be sharing experiences from the  recent project *Wiki loves
Monuments.* The Project intended to photograph as many of the 50,000
national monuments (“rijksmonument“) throughout the Netherlands. These
included archeological sites in Drenthe, the canal houses in Amsterdam, and
the Royal Palace in The Hague.

The project received wide coverage on Wikimedia's blog as well as signpost.
The scale of the project and the application of best practices from earlier
events were significant. http://wikilovesmonuments.nl/

Today's talk is part of a series of invited speakers to share experiences
and best practices at Bangalore meetups/events. Earlier speakers have been Liam
Wyatt (Australia), Asaf Bartov (Israel), Josh Lim (Philipines) and Belayet
Hossain (Bangaldesh).
