International GLAM forum in Yerevan[edit]

Welcome to Yerevan!

Wikimedia Armenia is organizing a GLAM forum with the support of Yerevan Foundation in the framework of celebrations of 2800 anniversary of Yerevan, capital of Armenia. GLAM forum is a part of Wiki Loves Yerevan project, which is aimed at expanding information about Yerevan currently available in Wikimedia projects by creating new articles and editing the existing ones, translating them into several languages. GLAM forum will bring together GLAM experts and representatives from Wikimedia Movement and Armenia. This will be a great venue of learning and exchange, which will empower local GLAM institutions to go online and utilize diverse opportunities of Wikimedia Projects.

Wiki Loves Yerevan[edit]

The GLAM forum will be followed by Wiki Loves Yerevan international edit-a-thon month, during which representatives of various Wikimedia communities will edit articles about Yerevan and topics related to the capital city. 15 winners of the international edit-a-thon will travel to Armenia to participate in 2800 celebrations in the end of September 2018.
