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
samarbetsr├ąd, 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.

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

Teach the teachers!

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.
