Abstract (at least 300 words to describe your proposal)

Wikimedia Sverige, in a 3-year project with the Europeana Foundation, will arrange a Europe-wide image contest in the same style as Wiki Loves Monuments. This campaign is called Wiki Loves Public Art and will involve... surprise!... taking pictures of public art (Where this is possible). Wiki Loves Public Art will take place during the spring of 2013. Up till that time, Wikimedia Sverige will have a person hired to coordinate with all European chapters and communities, and want to invite people from chapters in Europe to discuss how to get the best results. The project is supported by at least 47 different GLAM:s around Europe, which is a great way to get closer to the GLAM:s in your country.
