The growing GLAM
Ministry of culture awarded Wikimedia Serbia
Wikimedia Serbia has received the Certificate of appreciation for the contribution in improving the digitization process of cultural heritage, by the Ministry of Culture and Information of Republic of Serbia. The Certificate was given by the Minister of culture and information Mr. Vladan Vukosavljević at the ceremony held at the National Museum in Belgrade. This is a result of the strong partnership with the Ministry within the GLAM program, supported through GLAM seminars and Wikimedian in residence program.
We believe in achieving even greater success in upcoming years when it comes to presenting Serbian cultural heritage at Wikipedia and other wiki projects, spreading our mission of free knowledge.
