The board of Wikimedia Denmark has committed itself to quarterly
reports. This is the first one.


Quarterly Report - April 2011

Members and Economy

Activities in 1st quarter 2011

Two board meetings was conducted; a physical presence meeting in
February and one online in March.

we have decided to remain in contact, though no further activities are
currently planned.

Planned activities in Q2-Q3-Q4 2011

to the Wikimedia Commons.

photograph numerous artefacts and the Museum will further explore the
possibility of donating an amount of existing images to Wikimedia
In late 2011 or in the beginning of 2012, the National Museum
advertises a Wikipedian-in-residence position.
