Basque Wikimedians User Group — official name, in Basque: Euskal Wikilarien Kultura Elkartea or EWKE — is a group formed by active members of Basque Wikimedia projects who are interested in organizing and participating in outreach activities on a Basque Country level. It was formed in 2016, shen some users started a collaboration with the San Sebastian - European Capital of Culture 2016 (Q12256350). In 2017 EWKE started a long-time education project funded by the Basque Government, where thousands of students have contributed to improve Wikipedia. In 2019 we made the first ever Wikimedia+Education conference and since 2020 we have been working also with the Government of Navarre. Currently, we are a group with more than 50 members and 5 staff members, devoted to education, GLAM, multimedia projects and Basque language.

Members of the current user group have been active for several years now, engaging in activities that include workshops, edit-a-thons, townpedias, and other education related events.


Our main goal is helping Basque language to thrive in the Wikimedia ecosystem. We promote education projects, some GLAM activities, WikiWomen groups and edition contests. Our current strategy can be read here: Basque Wikimedians User Group/Strategy/2024-2027
