#CTM11 #vangoghmuseum

It is a privilege to be at a conference like the communicating the museum. It allows me to network with people who are only forty minutes away from my home and who also travelled a considerable distance. People like the two ladies of the Van Gogh Museum.

They are not happy with the article on Vincent, consider that the facts are not well represented, that some of the major references are missing. They asked me how to deal with this. We talked about it and we talked about the material published by the Tropenmuseum and how material that museums have in depot may gain relevance when it becomes available at Commons and how annotations are so important, even essential.

The Van Gogh museum wants to meet in the near future with the Dutch chapter, they first want to learn about how to improve the articles on content that is dear to them. With this covered we may talk about the material in their depot.
