Collaborations taking off
Collaboration with Council of the Central museums
The letter of intent signed by the Council of the Central museums and Wikimedia Sweden has so far resulted in a photo safari at the Hallwyl house followed by an edit-a-thon back in june. In august Axel Pettersson did a presentation to the general directors of all the National museums to give them a better understanding of what Wikipedia is and how it works. During the presentation, Christina Mattson, director of Nordiska museet, came out as a Wikipedian and told the other directors that she had been editing for a long time already. In september the pilot will start and the next item on the agenda is a staff workshop at Naturhistoriska riksmuseet (The Swedish Museum of Natural History).

GLAM is the right thing to do
At the Wikimedia Sweden strategy meeting a short summary was done trying to find out how close our projects fell within the scope of what we should be doing. Content donations was at the top with a grade of 9.7 on a 0 to 10 scale. Runners up was building partnerships with educational institutions (9.3) and Wikipedia Education Program (8.9). This work is the start of putting our operational plan for the next year together.
