Project Plan[edit]


  1. What kind of event(s) or activities are you planning to hold for your Wikipedia 20 event? Please let us know if these events include a meetup, edit-a-thons, workshops, photowalks, contests, or any kind of campaign.
    We are planning to organize a meeting where we'll invite our partners we had worked and organized edit-a-thons with during the year (Art&Feminism Turkey, OpenStreetMap Turkey, Creative Commons Turkey, Teyit.org, Pera Museum, Imece Platform, Başlangıç Noktası, SU Gender etc.), as well as our education programs partners (the academicians who gave Wikipedia assignments in their courses). In the meeting we are willing to celebrate the new age of Wikipedia and brainstorm for 2021-2022 yearly events. We are also planning an edit-athon with the participation of mainly active users. We would like to ask them to write new articles as a gift for the 20th birthday of Wikimedia and send small gifts (promotional materials) for the contributors.
    We also would like invite internet users to give a birthday gift to Wikipedia by contributing to articles. We would like to guide the newcomers online with the help of community members who are from the new mentor team. We would like to promote this campaign by social media.
  2. If participants will be contributing to Wikimedia projects (such as in an edit-a-thon), do you have experienced Wikimedia editors to lead the event? (If you are not doing this kind of event, please write N/A or leave the section below blank)
    Yes, we have. We expect the participation from the active editors but we also have experienced editors to lead new editors.
  3. If participants will be contributing to Wikimedia projects (such as in an edit-a-thon), do participants have the equipment or skills needed to participate and contribute high quality content? If not, how will you support them? (If you are not doing this kind of event, please write N/A or leave the section below blank)
    We have experienced many contributors within the community and yes the participants have experience in contributing and the new ones will be guided.
  4. How will you promote and let participants know about your Wikipedia 20 event? Please describe or link to the spaces you will be using to inform your community about your activities. Please note there are resources available to support your communications for Wikipedia 20 events.
