GLAMThe Co-operation Council of Woking Life Museums We signed a Letter of Intent<https://se.wikimedia.org/wiki/Projekt:Arbetslivsmuseer_2013/Avsiktsf%C3%B6rklaring> (in Swedish) with the Co-operation Council of Working Life Museums (Arbetslivsmuseernas samarbetsråd, link to Swedish Wikipedia<http://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arbetslivsmuseernas_samarbetsr%C3%A5d>) which has a membership of more than 400 Working Life Museums in Sweden. This Letter of Intent is similar to the letter of intent signed in May, 2012, with The Council of the Swedish Central Museums which made way to several workshops, upcoming uploads and the editing by the institutions concerned. The Vasa Museum We signed a Letter of Intent on starting a specific project with the Vasa Museum. The museum is a member of The Council of the Swedish Central Museums and this LoI is a direct spin-off from that overall collaboration arrangement The Vasa Museum project is about an exhibition and we will have workshops and Wikipedia competitions, and also assist the museum with the integration of Wikimedia content into the exhibition. The National Historical Museum We held a workshop at The National Historical Museum (Historiska museet) with five employees. Image uploading, editing, categorizing and use of relevant templates was on the schedule as well as two presentations, one on a project about writing articles on all civil parishes and one on copyright and free licences. Europeana Awareness [image: Wikilovespublicart 4.svg]<https://se.wikimedia.org/wiki/Fil:Wikilovespublicart_4.svg> <https://se.wikimedia.org/wiki/Fil:Wikilovespublicart_4.svg> - A voting has been held on the logo for Wiki Loves Public Art. The winner can be seen to the right. - The website wikilovespublicart.eu was launched. - Eva Fransson was assigned as new national coordinator for Swedish Wiki Loves Public Art. Database for Public Art We got funding from Swedish Governmental Agency for Innovation Systems (Vinnova) in their open data program to collect and create a database for public art. We plan to build it on a similar architecture as the Wiki Loves Monuments database, so that it can be utilized in a similar way for the Wiki Loves Public Art contest. We are funded with 375 200 SEK, and we will hire a new employee for execution of the project. Education We had a blogpost<http://blog.wikimedia.org/2012/12/17/wikipedia-education-program-sweden-kicks-off/> about the Swedish program published on the Wikimedia Foundation blog.

We have been announcing three WikiSkills face-to-face courses and since then been looking for suitable course participants - teachers eager to perhaps hold a wiki lesson with their students. The courses will be held in the south, middle and north of Sweden (which is a loong country) hence also giving some attention to parts of Sweden which generally is not spoiled whith events.
