Grants:Project/Rapid/Ennegreciendo Wikipedia and Noircir Wikipédia Website
The goal of this rapid grant is to have a global intuitive website for the Blackening Wikipedia works in the wikimedia movement. It will be a support for explaining our work in wikimedia to future new contributors in the movement, and also to new partner (generally cultural partners but not only) with whom we organize editathons.
What is your promotion plan?
This website will be intuitive. It will be used as a first approach of what we do in the Wikimedia movement, without frightening new contributors for whom the the wiki pages are complicated to understand and often with too much content. We will centralize the information, talk about the current and future work of our projects and their progress.
The plan is to design website for the global Blackening Wikipedia projects on the wikimedia movement. Indeed, Blackening Wikipedia exists in:
- Wikipedia ES
- Wikipedia Noircir Wikipédia|FR
- Wikipedia CA
- Categories in Wikimedia Commons FR and ES
- Wikidata project, main page and tabs in FR and ES
- Editathons on Wikisource, see here and here https://fr.wikisource.org/wiki/Sujet:Vibe64fbvsv39n6l
Here is a draft of the sections we are thinking of: about us, issues, initiatives, blog, resources, media, join us.
In the future we can invite contributors of Blackening Wikipedia to create entries on the blog or news section. In the resources we plan to make available the videos of the webinars in Spanish and French of how to upload in Wikimedia Commons and how to start editing on Wikidata.
How will you let your community know about the promotion campaign?
The website will be promoted in our calling/"business" card, in the roll-ups used at the face-to-face events, in facebook, in the e-mail campaigns, on the websites of cultural and institutional places that host our workshops and partners as Magasins des Horizons (see example here).
Do you have any experience in promoting Wikimedia projects either offline or online?
Blackening Wikipedia in French, Spanish and Catalan has 2 years of experience promoting online and offline events.
What is your post-promotion plan?
Mid-september 2020 we will start our third season of editathons based online, in Paris, in Geneva, in Colombia and in Guyane. The idea is to have a website that follows us during these activities.
AfricanadeCuba and Galahmm are on the process of creating a joint bank account. Hopefully if this grant is approved it will be transfered in this new joint account aimed for the Blackening Wikipedia grants.
