Wikimedia España will try to celebrate the Galipedia 10th anniversary with a bunch of speakers, galician speakers and non-galician, talking about the project, free culture and free licenses. We want to publicize this project, a wikipedia in galician, one of the four encyclopedias in this language, and the only of free access. Our goal will be increase the number of editors in this project and this event is complementary with the events that the Galipedia's community is developing. 
The event will take place in Santiago de Compostela, the capital of Galicia, at first initially, at 9 March. We have contacted with University of Santiago de Compostela and CESGA for the venue of the event. The USC has confirmed that it allows us to use an events room in the CM Fonseca.
Project scope and list of activities
We have have contacts with some speakers that have agreed in participate in this event, and we are seeking others. There is a coordination page at the wikipedia in galician, here (in galician). The main funding in this project is for this expense. We want to make a little gift to the speakers and to the volunteers that will work in this event, and we think that the shirts with that slogan is a good one. Other work is to contact some organism, like municipality of Santiago de Compostela or University of Santiago de Compostela, to ask for some place for make the event.
This is the list of the speakers that have confirmed his attendance:
- Jorge Sierra, president of Wikimedia España.
- David Gómez, lecturer and generator of didactic material in the UOC, wiki consultant and author of Debats de l’AAVC: Llicències lliures per al retorn social de la producció artística and several peer-reviewed papers.
- Manuel Gago Mariño, teacher, director of culturagalega.org, digital journalist and author of the blog Capítulo cero.
- Praza Pública, digital newspaper in Galician that uses free licences.

- A navalla suíza, Galician company devoted to the design of web projects that uses software with free licences.
We have asked Jim Wales if he could assist to the conferences, if his calendar is free at this dates.
Fit to strategy
- We want that more people to contribute to Galician wikipedia and Commons, and other projects
- We want that more people know the Galician wikipedia and use it
- We want to make more visibility of the Spanish Chapter
We think that some press, radio and even TV media, could be interested in this project, making more visibility of Galician wikipedia and other projects from the Wikimedia Foundation.
Measures of success
There are some measures that we can study:
- number of attendees. If lower than 30, we will regard that as a failure.
- media stories. If more than 2 positive stories, we will regard that as a success.
- photos and videos. If we fail to cover these event with photos and videos and upload them under a free license, we regard that as a failure. All the speakers need to have photo in Commons.
