Wiki Loves Art

Spinster and Romaine had a session in Antwerp with a number of musea. They felt that Belgian musea are a bit hesitating as to allow uploading of free content. It was proposed to work closely together with Packed, Eurpeania, and Creative Commons Belgium. Instead of we going to the musea, it would be better if the musea would request our involvement. One participating museum could trigger other musea' involvement.

  • Musea could set a maximum picture resolution
  • Limiting the number of participating musea (effort, coordination, communication)
  • Could require a lot of work
  • We do not have a paid employee yet...
  • Agree on the GFDL or CC BY-SA license
  • Musea could want some service in return: article, publication on paper, etc.
  • It is (technically) difficult to take good pictures (light, reflection, other objects, etc.)
  • Musea could have free advertising via Wikipedia articles (Google Search!)

We have still to discuss a lot about licenses, organisation, community, responsibilities, foundation involvement.
