We represent the Wikipedia Khmer. In order to host a Wikipedia watch party and you that opportunity for basic Wiki training and user networking, we would need limited funds to voer for the costs of the vents: rental of the room, light food and beverages, rentral of appropriate material (projector, extra computers, ...). Activities which relate to our grant include:
- Data packages to distribute to Wikimania participants
- Administrative or operational costs for to distribute funds to community members, such as transfer fees
- Small hardware expenses to support access (such as webcams, microphones, head/earphones)
- Video production support for pre-recorded Wikimania sessions (such as equipment or space)
- In-person meetups that coincide with Wikimania activities (food, beverage, meeting space)
- Post-Wikimania meetups resulting from having attended Wikimania (food, beverage, meeting space)
Our estimate for the number of participants the funding will support is between 15 and 30 people. Wikipedia Khmer has known a rising interest from readers (going over the threshold of 3M+ views in May 2021) but the number of editors and active users is decreasing. Hopefully this event can spark new interet, especially among urban students, postgraduates and University teachers.
