Wiki Loves Museums is a project that aims to activate citizen participation with cultural heritage and encourages the creation of openly licensed images, articles & learning resources about India’s museum collections on the web.
For our fellowship, we are looking for those interested in the Open Knowledge movement, who are keen to expand their skills, knowledge and opportunities within the sphere of digital humanities.
A fellow will help us achieve the following objectives of the project:
- Research and create new knowledge (or new narratives) about Indian art and cultural heritage, working in close collaboration with museums & aligned partners.
- Create visibility for Indian cultural content on The Heritage Lab platform, Wikipedia and the wider web by expanding coverage on Wikipedia on topics relevant to collections.
This means, adding sources for existing Wikipedia pages (example) and create new pages “on notable topics that relate to the collection”. Fellows also work to share Wiki related digital skills with colleagues at museums or the public.
