* CSO civil society organization / NGO nonprofit organization (Q163740) organization that uses its income to achieve its goals rather than distributing it as profit or dividends.

Aim, Scope and Practice edit

The aim of the future project is to create the (first?) examples of coverage of CSO cultural networks in Wikidata, especially focusing at independent and non-institutional ones.

The project more specifically serves to coordinate the following activities:

  • the creation and curation of initial data about a few cultural networks in Europe (starting with independent culture in Croatia and SEE region);
  • the ingestion of data about cultural networks into Wikidata;
  • the enhancement and completion of such data;
  • the use of the data to create maintenance lists on Wikipedia;
  • the implementation and maintenance of ontologies and multilingual thesauri relating to cultural networks;
  • the inclusion of the data into Wikipedia and its sister projects, such as in infoboxes or lists.

In 2021 we prepared the partnership and started the project work as a group of four (1 Clubture staff member, 2 learners, and 1 WiR) meeting each week for planning, processing, and learning together. We were given support by the Wikimedia Foundation, as meta:Grants:Project/Rapid/ years of participatory and open culture.
