Report of Wikimedia Nederland for October and November 2009


Wikimedia Nederland participates in the Wikimedia Fundraiser for 2009/2010. As a result of the switch of banks earlier this year, Wikimedia Nederland implemented iDEAL as a new payment-option for Dutch customers, used by over 70% of all Dutch internet-shoppers. In the first few weeks of fundraising, iDEAL already proved to be the main gateway for donors from the Netherlands.

General Assemblee[edit]

On October 24, a general assemblee was held. Topics discussed included past and planned activities, the 2010 budget and the long term development of the association.

Multimedia Meeting[edit]

Wikimedia NL was able to fund two participants to the Multimedia Meeting in Paris on 6-8 November organized by Wikimedia France. Also someone was sent to the strategy discussion meeting on internal roles the day before the multimedia meeting.


After the cooperation in Wiki Loves Art/NL and also the ongoing cooperation on the exhibition on Maroon culture the Tropenmuseum has released some 35.000 images about Indonesia through Wikimedia Commons. Several of the images have been digitally restored and some became featured pictures in addition we have been asked to restore six images that were selected by the Tropenmuseum. The Indonesian chapter intends to translate the descriptions in to Indonesian.
