As we add to the information overload, it makes sense to bring the information close up and personal but also relay the information people are looking for.
The first session is in progress and, there already several points to make
- Have yourself a template for your museum and tag every object we have on Commons. This will allow us to generate statistics both for number of articles and number of visitors.
- A modern artist has relevance when a museum has works in its collection. There are two opportunities: have an article on the museum website and refer to this on the article. Particularly for young modern artists it is important to have some images of their work under a free license so that the artist can be marketed.
- It makes sense to have a reference of an artist to a museum. This is how we can help people to the closest museum where an artist can be experienced.
- Museums do understand what NPOV means; what they need is a text that is not only fact laden but also well written. A good article is well written and the facts that we know is not necessarily the whole story.
