See here and here for general information about The Powerhouse Museum.

See here for information about the planned "Backstage Pass" event.

The Powerhouse Museum has become involved in free content through the release of many images, via flickr, with no known copyright restrictions. Various wiki editors have incorporated these images into various projects, and WMAU has had some contact with the museum with a view to working together, for example providing reports on image usage which may support momentum for further release of media :-)

This page is intended to centralise information concerning the possible relationships between the museum and the chapter, brainstorming and record keeping.

Current Image Usage

On the English Wikipedia

User:Privatemusings has uploaded several 'sets' of images from Flickr to Wikimedia Commons, and persuaded a friendly bot operator to create this list - comprising the images from two sets. This tool allows any editor to check the usage of images through all Wikimedia projects (you can paste the entire list by selecting 'bulk mode'), and this tool allows any editor to check individual article statistics.

In this initial stage, this manual process is one way of producing reports as to image usage, and traffic on wiki projects - if you have technical expertise and any ideas for the automation of such a process - please do get in touch!

Here are the results of running the list of images through the two tools.


In international Wikipedias

  • The Sydney article from the Portuguese Wikipedia uses a Powerhouse Image.
  • This article about Bourke from the German Wikipedia uses a Powerhouse Image.
