We have reached an agreement with the Fundació Joan Miró to do an experiment with multilingual QR codes, linking them to Wikipedia articles.
Some curators of the museum will send us a selection of 15-20 special artworks, and we will start a Wikiproject to create these articles in different languages, just like the one is being done with the Wright Challenge at the Derby Museum and Art Gallery. During the exhibit, curators will stick thes QRcodes just next to the artworks.
To encourage locals, we are preparing a hackathon at the museum's library in September. We are now engaging some art history teachers from Barcelona, to help us reach as many featured articles as possible.
During the next few weeks we will keep you informed on how this project evolves. It is clear that this will be a full-coloured GLAM-Wiki summer.
