Our proposed activities are divided into four areas including content campaigns, media campaigns, face-to-face events and GLAMs. Timeline of these events is available in our event calendar (https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Thailand/Calendar_2024). Content campaign events will be launched to promote content addition including Wiki4Women, WikiGap, Wikipedia Asian Month and Wikivoyage Competition. Another group of activities is media campaigns. Because our Wiki Loves campaigns including Wiki Loves Earth and Wiki Loves Monument have been quite successful since we first started them in 2014, we will continue to host these competitions in order to keep the existing participants engaged as well as getting new participations. Several face-to-face meetings will take place in 2023 to promote our visibility and engagement with members and third party organizations. Editing events will be hosted as Wikicamps. Three were organized in 2023 and 3-4 Wikicamps will take place in 2024. Also, photowalks will be held regularly throughout the year in collaboration with our partners. The theme will be diversified to be more appealing to broader groups of people. The year 2024 will be the first time we host a GLAM event in collaboration with the Siam Society. We are planning a digitization project of historical documents that are dated back 400 years ago. These pieces of literature are of historical importance nationally and globally. They will be uploaded to Wikisource and shared with the world.
