This page describes the project together with the Middelheim Museum.


The goal is to get the collection of the Middelheim Museum in Wikidata, images of the artworks to Wikimedia Commons and articles written in Wikipedia, in line with the policy of the Flemish Government to publish collections under an open license as open data (described: Visienota ‘een Vlaams cultuurbeleid in het digitale tijdperk’   (archived)).

History and background[edit]
