Cultural institutes
  • Seddon and myself met with the Victoria and Albert Museum on the 15 October; the meeting focused on planning for the Britain Loves Wikipedia event - both the launch event component and the month-long component. It also talked about various tangents relating to our work with museums.
  • Seddon and myself also met with The National Archives, also on the 15 October. The meeting went very well, with lots of ideas discussed about how we can work together.
