By the 16th April 2013, the number of images that has been posted by the doual’art hosts of the WikiAfrica Space in Cameroon. The images that reveal Douala and its public art now number an astonishing 2,000 donations to Wikimedia Commons.
The images can be browsed all the images in the category doual’art or you can find them in specific categories such as artists, public art, the SUD Salon Urbain de Douala, and the neighborhoods of Douala. This documentation is impressive not only for its potential use on Wikipedia, but because it offers all sorts of scholars the opportunity to have a better look at Douala with content which can be used, reused and updated.
This result was achieved thanks to the collaboration and effort of many people. Many thanks to Marilyn Douala Bell, Didier Schaub, Paulin Tchuenbou, Sandrine Dole, Kamiel Verschuren, Lucas Grandin, Christian Hanoussek, Cercle Kapsiki, ArtBakery, Roberto Paci Dalò, Chiara Somajni, Goddy Leye, Marta Pucciarelli, Ginette Daleu, Lard Buurman, to all the artists involved and to doual’art, WikiAfrica, Share Your Knowledge and Mobile A2K.
