Journey Through Legacies: Tracing Celtic Wikimedia Roots
  • Discover more about the legacies of Wikimedia pioneers, delving into the insights and experiences that inform our present-day endeavours. We invite submissions that explore the historical foundations of Celtic Wikimedia projects, sharing stories and lessons learned from the past to help shape our future.
Momentum Unleashed: Overcoming Barriers, Igniting Progress
  • Discover contemporary Celtic Wikimedia initiatives as we confront barriers and progress towards our collective goals.
  • Join us as Wikimedia Community Ireland launches the toolkits developed through the WikiWomen Erasmus+ Project which empowers second-level students to research, write, and share biographies of women and gender-nonconforming individuals through their respective regional languages.
  • We welcome submissions that highlight innovative strategies, success stories, and challenges overcome in advancing Celtic language projects within the Wikimedia community.
Visions Forged: Charting Paths in Language Advocacy
  • Forge paths in language advocacy and representation within Wiki communities as we collectively sculpt a shared vision for the future of Celtic language preservation and promotion within the Wikimedia landscape.
  • We’re seeking submissions that explore best practices, research findings, and strategic insights aimed at strengthening Celtic language communities (in physical and digital spaces), providing Open Access resources, and advocating for visibility and rights on Wikimedia Projects.
