Given the importance of for people publishing information online, it'd be great if anyone working on wikidata also fed back to the people, as they've explicitly asked for feedback from people working in cultural heritage.

Subject: Re: Question about data models or standards for representing exhibitions?


There is a "Working Group on Digital Exhibitions“ and they at least suggest to work on a "structured Metadata Format for the description of exhibitions“. 



For contact I would suggest Stefan Rohde-Enslin ([log in to unmask]) of the Institut für Museumsforschung, Berlin.

Hi EuropeanaTech members,

I was contacted by some former colleagues in Sweden asking a question:

Are there any formal or de-facto standards for modelling (physical) exhibitions?


The context is that Swedish museums and the Wikimedia Sweden chapter are running a project to create articles on Wikipedia about specific exhibitions and would like to also include structured data (I think on Wikidata) about these exhibitions.


All I know is that there is an Event class in Schema.org but maybe you know of other or better options?
