About the Celtic Knot[edit]

The Celtic Knot Wikimedia Language Conference aims to bring people together to share their experiences of working on sharing information in minority and minoritized languages on the Wikimedia projects. Our aim is to help people learn how to direct the flow of information across language barriers and support their communities. As in previous years we will have a strong focus on Wikidata and its potential to support languages.

The Celtic Knot Wikimedia Language Conference is a place where people working on growing and maintaining their communities (on Wikipedia, but also Wikisource or Wikidata) can meet, learn from each other, and support each other on topics like community growth, technical tools, or collaboration with partners.

Driven by the vision of Wikimedia UK, together with local partners and fellow Wikimedia chapters, the Celtic Knot conference carries the experience of five annual editions, including two online events. In each of the first five years, the conference has spotlighed a language or language family, and the participants can learn more about the cultural context as well as the state of the Wikimedia projects in these languages. See also the previous editions: 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, Arctic Knot 2021.

For the 2022 edition, Wikimedia UK, with the support of Wikimedia Deutschland, proposes a broader approach, with an emphasis on skills development for a diverse group of participants.


The Celtic Knot Language Conference 2022 will experiment with a hybrid format: while a 2-day conference will take place online on July 1-2, the language communities are encouraged to organize local, onsite events from June to September.

The online program on July 1-2 will include:

  • News from the Language Communities (see how you can participate)
  • 4 practical workshops to gain skills on different topics highlighted in the community input survey
  • A networking and guided discussion session, where people can connect with other editors and community leaders from minority language projects
  • A curated selection of videos from previous editions, to watch at your own pace
  • Social events and channels to connect informally with other participants

Do you have questions or suggestions around the online program? Feel free to contact Lea Lacroix (WMDE).

The decentralized onsite events can take place before, during or after the online program, and can be for example:

  • Meetup of a local community, social events
  • Watch-party of the online program or video pool
  • Workshops and introductions to the Wikimedia projects
  • Editathon in a specific language or on a specific topic
  • Follow-up of the conference, discussions, skills exchange

Interested in organizing a local event? Feel free to contact Richard Nevell (WMUK).
