Event overview[edit]

Purpose and vision

Please give a brief description of the event you are planning. What do you hope to accomplish during the event? Why is this event important for your community?

The WikiConvention francophone is the annual meeting of the french speaking community. In 2022 the event will be the first in person gathering in the last 2 years. We see this as an opportunity to build ever stronger human bonds amongst wikimedians, to increase capacity building and knowledge sharing and to hold strategic, structural discussions about WikiFranca. The WikiConvention Francophone 2022 will be an occasion to celebrate the great work french speaking wikimedians do together and to plan ahead for the future of our hub and projects.

Do you consider this to be a Regional; Thematic or Growth event? You can read more about each category here.

The event is centered around a shared language. It has the same goals and stakes as a regional event. This event will also make it possible to organize the second general assembly of WikiFranca which brings together 18 affiliates of the movement

Is it a Remote, or in-person event?

Community input[edit]

Use the results from the community engagement survey to fill in the table below. Since you cannot cover all topics or meet all needs at one event, prioritisation is important. Please rank the priority of each topic, skill, project or problem as high, medium or low. Finally, please answer the questions in the table below, if any of the questions are not relevant leave it blank.

Description Priority
Strategic discussions:

What are the top issues affecting your community that need to be discussed in person?

Community health (onboarding newcomers, offering an inclusive space, imagining new tools or trainings for conflict mediation) Medium
Community growth (how to attract and retain more people in francophone usergroups, how to attract more editors from Africa onto wikimedia projects) Medium
International capacity building and knowledge sharing High
Documenting endangered heritage and diversity (orality, languages, cultural heritage) Medium
Building shared governance and hub processes High
Capacity development:

Are there important skills that many people in your community need to learn?

  • Finance management
  • Project management
  • Community growth, community building and leadership
  • Structuring a usergroup/chapter
  • Outreach and partnerships
Highest to lowest
Working groups:

Are there joint projects that need to be planned in person?

WikiFranca needs to hold its general assembly (each member usergroup or chapter will have one person present)

WikiFranca also needs to hold a 2025 strategy meeting

Community building:

Are there other in-person activities are important for community building?

The most community building happens in talking over lunch, dinner or drinks.

Survey analysis:

  1. How many people did you send the survey to? How many people responded to the survey? The survey was sent to the WikiFranca telegram group, which has 105 members. It got 39 responses.
  2. Did you see consensus around shared goals that this community wants to focus on in the next 12 months? What were the top 2 goals? Goal 1 : Structure our cooperation (WikiFranca). We will design this structure as a basis for more activities shared by all francophone countries and intercontinental capacity building. Goal 2 ː Work on North-South support to encapacitate francophone African usergroups even more.
  3. Based on survey responses, what are the most important things your community should do at the conference to achieve those goals?

Strategy meeting

Capacity building sessions

Project presentations by wikimedians (knowledge sharing)


It is helpful to get an understanding of why this event is important to your community, and what experiences you have had in the past. Please answer the applicable questions below.

1. What inspired your community to begin planning this event?
When the conference was first organized, in 2016, we sought to bring wikimedians closer, help them learn from each other and build trust. It’s a great occasion to share the amazing work that community members are doing and improve general community awareness. After 6 years, a lot has evolved. Wikimedia Tunisia requested to host the in-person 2022 WikiConvention Francophone. The newly formed board of WikiFranca expected to be supporting the usergroup in that task, but Wikimedia Tunisia retracted from the organization in the last week of April. Francophone wikimedians have been looking forward to meeting in person again, after 2 years apart. What inspired the board of WikiFranca and Wikimedia France to plan this event in the short amount of time we have left, are those expectations from the community and the need for community leaders to meet up and form new projects. More than that, we need to lay down the structural foundations of WikiFranca together at the event, so that we can continue to increase our international activities and capacity building. If WikiFranca is to function as a Hub, its members need to meet up to continue to co-create it, build processes of shared governance, knowledge management and skill sharing.
How does this event relate to other activities that your community is working on?
The WikiConvention Francophone is the glue that holds WikiFranca together. It allows everyone to feel part of the francophone community, to diversify their projects and skills, to give hope and opportunities to future community leaders (especially for African usergroups or gender diversity projects) by connecting them to the right people, and more substancially to build WikiFranca as a hub.
For example, the Wikipedia 20 anniversary in Guinea took place because Aboubacarkhoraa, the leader of the Guinean usergroup, met Fawaz tairou, a co-founder of the Benin usergroup and N'fana Diakité, founder of the Malian usergroup at the WikiConvention. Together they were able to create a two day event with in person training workshops, but also video presentations from 12 francophone chapters and usergroups about different aspects of the wikimedia movement.
Another example is WikiFranca itself ː to function as a Hub, WikiFranca needed to be able to sign partnerships and hold projects of its own, have an official representation and a legal existence. The WikiConvention Francophone allowed us to hold the WikiFranca constitutive assembly, to adopt statuses and elected the first board. Before that it allowed us to hold strategy meetings in 2018 and 2019 that led to Wikimedia France and Wikimedia Switzerland opening up their microgrant programs to francophone wikimedians, which meant an increase in the number of activities that African usergroups could do. These meetings also led to two consecutive year plans for WikiFranca without which we could not have structured our cooperation into a hub.
3. Do you have any Thematic or Regional committee or group? (Such as WISCom, CEE, Iberocoop, etc).


Venue and Logistics[edit]

1. Do you have any proposed venue for the event? If so, please share details (such as: how far is it from the airport or transportation hub; how close is it to the hotel, do you anticipate any challenges with using the space for the event you are planning?)
The FIAP is our proposed venue in Paris, which would comprise the conference rooms, hotel and restauration in one location. It is a one hour train ride from both parisian airports. We are in contact with them.
2. Is the event venue and hotel accessible for people with physical disabilities?
Yes it is.
3. Are you planning to outsource some of the services? For example - a travel agency, an event production service?
We aren't planning to for the moment, but we have put together a volunteer team of 20 french speaking wikimedians who have each taken on specific tasks. We will also be hiring two interns to help with administrative and logistical aspects.

Friendly space policy[edit]

We'll be using the Universal Code of Conduct


It is crucial that most participants have a minimum level of Wikimedia experience so that they can engage actively in workshops and discussions. Please answer all applicable questions below.

1. Please describe the target audience for this conference or event.
40-45 francophone usergroup and chapter leaders for the first 2 days (17th and 18th November) and about 150 francophone wikimedians for 2 the last two days (19th and 20th November).
2. If your conference has an outreach component to also target non-wikimedian individuals or mission aligned institutions, can you explain your intention for this outreach (for example: how will you ensure engagement with these participants after the conference, and what impact do you see them having on the projects)?
Key partners (politicians, institutions, collaboration from the education world etc.) are definitely invited. Even though they might not be wikimedians per se, they will only be invited if they are people that francophone chapters or usergroups plan to work with in the future or have been working with already.
3. Are you thinking about collaborating with potential partners? Such as national; educational or thematic groups and organizations? If so, will this partnership be a financial one (such as sponsorship), or a visionary one (to collaborate in regards to the content of the event)? Please share some details if you have any.
Financial : DGLFLF (a branch of the French government that promotes the use of the French language) (7000€ participation) Visionary : Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie Insitut Français Le Dictionnaire des Francophones (2IF) Collabora Lab (University) Ertim lab at INALCO (University)
4. In which ways can Wikimedia Foundation staff support your event onsite? If you would like support, please list the different capacities in which we can support, or describe how you would like Wikimedia Foundation staff to be involved in the event. (Some examples of Wikimedia Foundation support or involvement might be: for outreach and communication efforts; to lead specific sessions; for legal or safety reasons, etc).
It would be an honor to see Wikimedia Foundation staff members or board members taking part in the event, to present some of their work, or discuss key strategical issues with community leaders. We would love to publish an article about the wikiconvention francophone on the Wikimedia Foundation’s site “Diff”.


1. How many scholarships would you like to offer and what expenses will the scholarship cover?
We will offer 25 scholarships to African wikimedians that would cover room and board for 5 days and nights, all transportation means to get to and back from the conference - plain ticket, bus fares, taxi fares if needed Visa expenses - application price, visa price, transportation if the applicant needs to go to another country to get his/her visa (budget 35 000€)
We will offer 20 scholarships to french wikimedians, that cover their trip to and from the conference. (budget 5 000€)
2. How will scholarship recipients be selected?
By a scholarship committee, made up of 4 members (3 wikimedians from francophone countries and myself)
3. Do you plan to target or prioritize specific communities or participants?
We target african community leaders and project managers (for the first 25 scholarships)
We target french wikimedians who wouldn't be able to attend if they didn't have a travel grant (for the other 20 scholarships).
4. How will you insure diversity and inclusion in your scholarship process?
We will see that half of the grantees are women and/or people from the LGBTQI community. We will work with les sans pagEs (french version of women in red) to ensure that our process and application survey respect the privacy and protect applicants' personal data.

Venue +7000 The venue did not check their availabilities when they gave us a theoretical quote of 10 000€. When they made the actual quote with us, their prices were higher because they did not have the rooms they expected to be available, but some that were more expensive. We also added one room to accomodate informal meetings and people who wanted to contribute freely, because the venue were very strict about the use of their coffee break spaces. Since the room was costly, we decided for some workshops to be held there.
Scholarships +4024 Plain tickets are much more expensive than before. Visa costs wich were between 80 and 100€ for past editions, are now well over 130 each. Many grantees had to arrive 24h before the begining of preconferences or they would have missed the beginning, which adds one or two hotel nights and a few lunches and dinners to the budget.


+2149,77 goodies for participants that are useful for the event (stickers, pens, pencils, notepads and totebags)
Communication posters +1020 poster printing costs to allow people who could not attend the conference to present their projects anyway (as a way of countering the injustice african wikimedians face everytime the wikiconvention is held in France and they have to compete with each other for a scholarship and get a visa),

towards volunteers

+2387,13 We historically don't thank our volunteers enough and this time we have a big team of very motivated people, so we would love to thank them properly with some wikiconvention goodies that would be made only for them.
Recording sessions +3193 This is to anticipate a capacity problem ː it would take us too much effort and time to set everything up ourselves, get into the venue's systems and wires and put videos together. It will spare our staff and volunteers if we have tech support on this.
Transportation +1775 WikiFranca's president is coming from Bangkok instead of Abidjan, and then going back to Abidjan. Her ticket is then much more expensive. The car rental price has also gone up.
Catering -1648 We decided not to offer the sunday dinner to everyone (150 people), since most participants are leaving on friday afternoon anyway.
Connexions -645 We managed to get the price halved after our last call
Item that could be spared cost reason why we still ask for them
Printed programm 559 A printed programm is always better for people who have an old phone and no space for downloading the programm app, or who don't have a smart phone (free software and data protection advocates sometimes do, and we have some in our community).
totebags 1320 If we give people notepads, a programm and some pens/pencils they will appreciate having something to carry them in.
stress balls 102,13 some of our volunteers are under a lot of stress because most of them are involved in too many different projects in the wikimedia movement. It would be a way for us to show that we care and know how they feel.

  • Support Support As WikiFranca is starting to take shape, this is the occasion for the community to meet its board members, find out that they are actually approachable, and that they may find opportunities to start cooperating more thanks to this new structure.

  • Support Support As one of the founder of the French speaking WikiConvention, I endorse this project. The French speaking community is one of the biggest and most active communitty of Wikimedia. But volunteers are disseminate in a lot of countries. There is another challenge: a lot of established volunteers are based in France but a lot of newcomers are in African countries. So an annual physical event is very important to create links between volunteers. Pyb (talk) 17:56, 13 June 2022 (UTC)
