2022 European GLAMwiki Coordinators meeting

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki
4th Biennial European GLAMwiki Coordinators Meeting,

Hosted by Wikimedia Czech Republic, 14-16 September, 2022

Many European Wikimedia affiliates are actively involved in GLAM activities, but rarely do we work together. Following from the 2015, the 2017, and 2019 editions, this was a multi-day meeting of representatives from many European Wikimedia affiliates to share skills and best practices, coordinate projects, and consolidate connections between parts of our movement.
