2020: heritage organisation IHLIA starts monthly Wikipedia writing sessions
IHLIA is an international archive and documentation center on homosexuality, bisexuality and transgender. As of February 2020, IHLIA will organize monthly Wikipedia writing sessions to make more information about LGBT-related matters available on Wikipedia. IHLIA is supported by Wikimedia volunteers and Wikimedia Nederland.
Wiki Techstorm 2019
On November 22 and 23 the Wiki Techstorm 2019 took place in Amsterdam. More than 60 Wikimedians, developers and GLAM employees attended workshops, learned about and worked together on the software behind Wikimedia projects.
Prior to the Techstorm, the organisation team had prepared a workload of tasks, which was in line with what had been learned in the workshops. Mentors were available to support the participants. We can look back on a successful Wiki Techstorm 2019. A small selection of the results: 365 images were uploaded in bulk by participants from GLAM institutions and a Wikidata driven infobox about plantations was created and added to 117 articles on the Dutch Wikipedia.
