Africa CentreEdit

Africa Centre is a non profit organisation in Cape Town that supports arts and culture projects across Africa. Since 2007 they have commissioned thousands of arts and culture images that are related to their projects. The images give an insight into performance art, public art, site-specific art, poetry, visual art, social innovation, architecture, public space, etc. in Africa. They have applied the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlice 3.0 license, and have given me permission to upload their files. The photos for each of the Africa Centre projects would be uploaded under the categories Performance Art, Visual Art, Public Art, Poetry, Culture, Arts, and City of origin.Riannedac (talk) 08:54, 15 April 2011 (UTC)

I guess a lot of these photographs are actually derivative works of modern art. Does the Africa Centre own the copyright to the works? Permission should be arranged with Commons:OTRS.
For the actual uploading part we're writing Commons:Guide to batch uploading.
Are you already in touch with Wikimedia South Africa? I'll send them an email about this project. Multichill (talk) 14:30, 16 May 2011 (UTC)
