Celebrating Music Day with an All Sister projects Wikifest
Music is a universal language and everyone has a favorite song or composer. That is why we believe that everyone can contribute to improving the music content on Wikipedia and its sister projects. So we organized a special day on June 21 that took place at the Auditorium of Barcelona. Music is a so large field that a day is completely impossible to cover it all. Everyone relates to music in a different way. That is why the proposal of the day is to try to achieve several small challenges that brings us closer to the world of music.

It was therefore be much more than an edit-a-thon, it was a wikifestival like the major musical events. We realized that the collaborative principle that lies at the basis of everything we do, because we believe that adding the collective effort, adding small and unique pieces, we would improve the final result. It was the first time that all the sister projects with a Catalan version worked simultaneously for a common goal, making more real the term brothers and surpassing the individual projects and competitions. Throughout the day we wrote, took photographs and edited on topics related to music, in a pioneering and ambitious initiative. Participants could register for one or more of the nine existing challenges and change the group during the day if they wanted. More than 30 people attended and we got the 3 main responsibles for music in the city (Director of Music Museum, director of Music School and Director of Auditorium) all 3 editing Wikipedia!!

Another year of Roman illustrations for Wikipedia
Amical Wikimedia in collaboration with Escola d'Art i Disseny a Tarragona (School of Art and Design in Tarragona) and Museu Nacional Arqueològic de Tarragona (National Archeological Museum of Tarragona) has succesfully finished another academic course of the WikiArS initiave. This course we had even more students with intership (6 in total), during the course these students have drawed, with the scientific advice of the museum and from their teachers of the school, illustrations of Roman women and architecture of "villas". All the works produced are going to be uploaded to Wikimedia Commons so we can illustrate with a 100% scientific scope articles about ancient Roman.
