During the Wikilive 2022 conference, we exclusively presented a new edition of the GLAM brochure. We presented models of cooperation, achieved results, new partners, as well as their impressions of Wikimedia projects and endeavors. An English edition is in preparation.
After a two-year break, the Wikilive Conference was held in Belgrade. This conference is organized for Wikipedians and Wikimedians from Serbia and the region. The conference was attended by about 100 participants who attended the two-day program. During this conference, novelties in the GLAM program were presented through the session called GLAM round table, which was also attended by partners from cultural institutions. The contributors shared their experience in cooperation with Wikimedia Serbia, their understanding of the importance of digitizing cultural heritage, as well as the Wiki project. Many experiences were exchanged, plans for future activities were made and time was used to connect with each other. The round table was attended by Milica Naumov from the Museum of African Art in Belgrade, Aleksandra Popović from the University Library Svetozar Markovic, Miloš Todorović, a participant in the project, Nevena Popović from the Association of Fine Artists of Serbia and Aleksandar Marušić from the Museum of Rudnik and Takovo Region.
