Galipedia 10 - cartel.jpg
Provide a detailed list of activities performed to complete this project, descriptions of these activities, and the amount of time spent on each activity. This section should also include a list of participants, or a link to pictures, blog posts, or videos from the project or event.
We have organized a series of conferences with the participation of different lecturers that have had a good received between different communities and it have had a big diffusion in the media.
List of lecturers:
Wikiskills, Jose Manuel Abuin Mosquera, Project Tecnician at CESGA, aprox. 1 hour
O lema da Wikipedia es ti, Antonio Gregorio Montes, Galipedia administrator, aprox. 1 hour
Internet e activismo cultural: unha ollada desde o corazón da crise económica, Manuel Gago Mariño, Director of culturagalega.org and teacher at University of Santiago de Compostela, aprox. 1 hour
Conocimiento libre y democracia, Javier de la Cueva, lawyer, intelectual property expert, aprox. 1 hour
We had to withdraw of the program the round table Empresas galegas con licenza libre! because two of the participants could not assist by problems of last hour.
We have the photos at Commons at commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Galipedia_10_years
We are working editing the videos of the speechs and we will upload them in a few weeks.

Lessons learned[edit]

What went well?
It was very good the implication of the lecturers, facilitating our work at all times.
What did not go well?
We had problems with the reservation of the airplane tickets, if it is necessary to use this transport mean, it has to be scheduled much earlier time to avoid extra costs.
Other thing was that we had planned to reach three lectures from out of the Autonomous Community of Galicia but we can't do it because several lecturers did not answer to our request and others were not available in the dates of the event. Finally we could only count with Javier de la Cueva.
What would you do differently if you planned a similar project?
What we would do different is that we would reduce the number of activities in order to have enough time for later discussion on them. Addionally, the conference should finish late, as assistants cannot usually stay till the end of it.
Other thing that we would do is to add a budget category for general administration expenses in travels, mail, telephone, etc. for organize the conference.

Project goal and measures of success[edit]

Project goal[edit]

Provide the project goal here.
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.
Did you achieve your project goal? How do you know your goal was achieved? Please answer in 1 - 2 paragraphs.
We have achieved some of the aims since we have achieved that it increased the presence of the project in the media. The aim that have achieved half has been the number of assistants since the assistance was a bit lower of which we had foreseen. One thing that we have achieved was images of all the lecturers and even we have achieved the videos of his conferences, in brief we will upload them to Commons.

Measures of success[edit]

  • 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.
We can't reach the number of attendees, only 15-20 persons atendee the event
We reach the goal of media stories, a great number of media announced and followed the event. This is the list:

Impact[edit]

What impact did this project have on WMF's mission and the strategic goals? Please answer in 1 -2 paragraphs and include specific measures of impact such as the number of readers or editors reached by a particular project, or the number of articles edited or improved.
We do not have reliable quantifiable data of the increase of editors or readers, but in the last weeks we have noticed in the project an increase in the number of registered users and it could be derived from this activity. Also we have had contacts with 5 people in the conferences interested in the project, of which finally 3 have turned into new users and they are all teachers at a Secundary school with plans to introduce the use of Galipedia in education. This is very important point if we take into account that the number of active users of the Galipedia is closely of 300.
