Presentation "The role of Wikipedia and its community in cultural production and in supporting the heritage sector " by Iolanda Pensa for the conference "Heritage Commons: Towards a participative heritage governance in the third millennium”, session "Digital technology as an enabler, for new narratives of heritage, new ways of supporting heritage as a collective resource, and new means of increasing access to heritage and developing new audiences”, Royal Palace of the Venaria Reale, Turin, Italy, 24 settembre 2014.

With 500 million readers, 30 million articles in 280 languages and around 80,000 contributors, Wikipedia is a powerful and existing tool to increase access to heritage and to support heritage as a collective resource. Wikipedia online communities are already active in creating encyclopedic knowledge for everyone: they produce texts, images and translations, they respect copyright, they support institutions in providing open content for Wikipedia, and they have engaged with the contest Wiki Loves Monuments over 15’000 participants in 50 countries to produce 900,000 images documenting cultural heritage. Wikipedia recognizes the value of culture and it is an ally in heritage development; governments and institutions can play a key role in facilitating volunteer contributions with authorizations and freedom of panorama, and in acknowledging the value of this active citizenship supporting the heritage sector.
