Good day Programs Committee,

An international Wikimedia campaign is being organized for the 75 years after
the end of World War II:

I think it could be a great opportunity to engage some of WMCA's GLAM
partners. I'm sure LAC is already organizing something about WWII. Also, we
had an edit-a-thon in Ottawa a few years ago and there was participation from
the Canadian War Museum.

I don't know how such collaboration could look like: developing guides on how
to use the archival resources from those institutions to write on Wikipedia,
doing actual virtual edit-a-thons, mass upload or archives photographies and
other documents on Wikimedia Commons, etc...

What are your thoughts?
