Ask questions for grant

Dear all
Today I have meet Kacie to know something about the grants changes and the impact on wiki loves monuments.

The biggest point is that the grants will change after the 30th June. The rapid grant (until 2'000 dollars) is at the moment the most feasible solution but probably insufficient for some communities.

Some questions come up, so Kacie Harold is really so kind to have a session to solve questions about grants for local wiki loves monuments organizers.

She will be available in the afternoon in Pietro Pensa square (in front of ex museum hosting now community village).

Please come there tomorrow and bring with you your questions.

Use this opportunity to prepare a great grant!

Import spring monument lists into Wikidata

Hi all!

As many of you may be aware, Wikimedia Sweden is working on getting the monument data to Wikidata. At the hackathon before Wikimania, we would like to do an import sprint, where you as experts on your local heritage can help them out to get the monument lists imported! 

Please do indicate your interest both here and on Phabricator: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T137457

The room will be announced later, but it will take place either way in Esino Lario, at the primary school on Wednesday 22 June. 

Both coders and wikidata wizards who would like to help with the import, as people who know their heritage lists well, and want to help us out understand the data better are very welcome! 

If you have any questions, just shoot!

Best,

Lodewijk

When does the wiki loves ALL monuments?

Hi all,

When dies the wiki loves all monuments?
In other words, how do we get all monuments in Wikipedia (etc)?

This question applies to both the photos as the articles (including lists), that's our challenge.

But before we can get there, we need to know from which countries and areas in the world we already have all monuments in lists on Wikipedia.

Please check if your country/area is already added here:
https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Lists_of_monuments

Please also check for dependencies, territories, other areas, etc!
(Those are added at the continent page where they are situated.)


Ready with your country?
Help us by checking other countries too. Especially those without a local affiliation.

Thanks all!


Romaine

Announcing Rapid Grants

Hello Wikimedians,

We are excited to announce the launch of a new Wikimedia Foundation grants program, Rapid Grants! 

Rapid Grants fund Wikimedia community members -- individuals, groups, or organizations contributing to Wikimedia projects -- to organize projects throughout the year for up to USD 2,000. Projects can include experiments or standard needs that don't need broad review to get started. Applications are reviewed weekly by WMF staff. 

Read more about the new program and apply here: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:Project/Rapid


For more information about next steps and important dates for the grants program redesign, please visit: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:IdeaLab/Reimagining_WMF_grants/Implementation

Cheers,

Alex

more advisory roles in the years to come.

Please kindly:
1. Add Athikhun to the organiser mailing lists (and remove me if you wish).
2. Support our grant application at meta. (We will complete it in a few days)

wanted: European heritage enthusiasts with a feel for social media

Hi everyone!

Our partner Europa Nostra is looking for volunteers for their social media network, who would like to work on promoting cultural heritage in their country through social media. I can imagine that there are some potential enthusiasts in our Wiki Loves Monuments circles :)

Please find below the call for volunteers by Wolter Braamhorst at Europa Nostra with more details.

Best,

Lodewijk

Dear all,

Europa Nostra is initiating a new participatory programme, called Social Media Volunteers for Heritage. Our partner for this programme is European Heritage Volunteers. The programme is part of our long term project 'Mainstreaming Heritage' which is supported under the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.

We hope this project is of interest to you and your network. I would appreciate it highly if you could inform colleagues and friends about this new initiative and I hope many of them will be tempted to get involved.

Let me first tell you more about what we planning to do. Social Media Volunteers for Heritage are volunteers who work digitally to further the cause and the message of the European heritage world through a variety of social media. These volunteers publish – remotely from their own location – stories, photos and videos on cultural heritage issues in their own country and follow the media of their colleagues in other countries as well as of Europa Nostra and European Heritage Volunteers. The Social Media Volunteers for Heritage network will not strictly be an Europa Nostra activity, it will exist outside of our web environment.

What are we looking for? In our opinion, civil society social media volunteers should be marathon runners, in it for the long run with a positive message, geared towards solutions and opportunities, tailored to the intended audiences. We need multi-taskers who look at subjects objectively, who want to tell and share stories, who are enthusiastic about the heritage in their own country and across Europe.

We are looking to create a reliable European network of volunteers, at least one in each European country, to be the ears and eyes of Europe's heritage community. A kick-off meeting will be held in Weimar, Germany at the end of August with the selected candidates.

The Social Media Volunteers for Heritage will be selected by Europa Nosta and European Heritage Volunteers on the basis of an on-line application form, which you can find HERE

All the best,


Wolter Braamhorst

Social Media Volunteers for Heritage Project

Fwd: Biggest donation of photos in Italy - Paolo Monti (BEIC)

Oggetto: [cultural-partners] Biggest donation of photos in Italy - Paolo 
Monti (BEIC)
Data: Fri, 8 Apr 2016 16:26:20 +0200
Mittente: marcok

Hi to all,
I’m the Wikipedian in residence at the digital library of Fondazione 
BEIC, Milan, Italy.

In the last days we at BEIC are uploading almost the entire photo 
archive of a notable Italian photographer, Paolo Monti, counting 15.000 
images.
The whole archive was acquired by Fondazione BEIC in 2008.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Photographs_by_Paolo_Monti

For what I know, this is the biggest donation of images in one shot ever 
made in Italy. It’s also the first time that a digital archive from a 
famous photographer is almost completely uploaded into Commons.

This notable result was possible thanks to the long-lasting 
collaboration between BEIC and Wikimedia Italia, started in 2014, and 
also thanks to the technical assistance of Federico Leva aka Nemo, the 
previous WiR at BEIC, now GLAM specialist at Wikimedia Italia.

The photos of the Paolo Monti archive represent a variety of subjects 
(art, events, architecture, people, portraits, nature, artistic nudes, 
experimental) and were shot since 1950s to 1980s. Many of them are B/W, 
but there are also many fascinating colourful artistic/experimental 
pictures.

We are now beginning to work on:
  * fixing categories (often translating the basic original italian 
keywords into english Commons categories) and providing a more detailed 
categorization
  * inserting useful images into Wikipedia articles (in italian, english 
and other languages)
  * selecting the best photos to candidate them as "featured pictures” 
in Wikimedia Commons (only those with 2 Megapixel or more).

Please help us, this is a huge work!
If you have any other ideas on how the images may be used, let us know!

Thank you,

Marco Chemello
