Building up an exhibition on the Surniname Maroon

The exhibition on the maroon of Suriname is being build at the Tropenmuseum. The picture shows the physical building of the exhibition but there is so much more to do.

In the Netherlands the subject of the Maroon is not well known and, the English Wikipedia provides typically the best information on the subject but you have to look hard to find it.

To provide more and better information, the Tropenmuseum will publish a book to accompany the exhibition. It will bring a lot of information together, and it can serve as a source for new and improved Wikipedia articles.

The purpose of the book and the exhibition is to improve the knowledge on the Maroon, as the Internet is becoming increasingly important as a source for information, the Tropenmuseum made many pictures available and is now taking a next step by helping the Wikipedia community write about this subject.
  • they will help improve the articles on the Suriname Maroon
  • they are willing to give access to their library to people who want to write on the subject
  • they are happy when the new book is used as a source for information in Wikipedia
