This Wikimedia Participation Support request was funded in the fiscal year 2014-15. A report is available.
I have been invited to speak at a TEDx talk in Port Elizabeth about my journey on Wikipedia, how I got involved? What are some of the things I've learned along the way. I'll also highlight on the projects we are running in the WM ZA chapter paying a special attention to our Wiki-towns project Joburgpedia.
Goal and expected impact
Most Wikimedia activities in South Africa are taking place in Johannesburg and Cape town. The goal here is to spark an interest and activate a Wikimedia Community in Port Elizabeth. Hence the following day on 2 July 2016 after my talk, I will be running an editathon that I organised with a fellow Wikimedian from Port Elizabeth which I'll be periodically monitoring.
- Travel (round trip airfare from Johannesburg to Port Elizabeth): USD 157
- Gautrain from Johannesburg to the O.R Tambo Airport: USD 13
- Incidental costs: USD 50
If possible I would like to have an advance disbursement. Or you guys can book the flight for me, it's still fine.
