Proposed participation[edit]

Wikimedia Estonia, the Estonian Digital Humanities Society, CAA Estonia, Estonian Literary Museum and other partners are organising a 2-day conference with the title „Open licences, open content, open data: tools for developing digital humanities” on November 1 – 3, 2017 in Tartu, Estonia. I am planning to speak about my own Wikipedia and Wikimedia experience: I'm editing a national Ukrainian weekly newspaper Culture and Life (Ukrainian: Культура і життя). This newspaper since 2017 is published under CC-BY 3.0 license[1]. I want to talk about the experience of introducing a free license for a printed newspaper. I also want to hear the experience of other colleagues.

Goal and expected impact[edit]

I hope that my knowledge will be useful for colleagues. I plan to continue my work together with Estonian and CEE wiki-community in the future and expect that cooperation will be more fruitful.

Budget breakdown[edit]

Round trip from Kyiv to Tartu will cost EUR 372.

Residence: EUR 66 per night x 3 nights = EUR 196. Organisers have booked 50 twin rooms in hotel Dorpat. [2]

Participation fee of the conference is 19 EUR.

Visa cost EUR 55, standard health insurance EUR 10.

Other instructions[edit]

I need plane tickets with round trip Kyiv/Riga and tickets for bus from Riga to Tartu.

I need Wikimedia Foundation to book air tickets for me. Other variants of flights even via other countries will be also suitable. Tickets for transportation by bus can be bought by WMF or reimbursed after the trip.

First 100 registrants will get the free accommodation.[3] I hope to get into the top one hundred, as registered in advance.

I also need a visa because I have an old passport. The visa costs 55 euros, but for journalists - 20 (Visa Center services only). I also need standard health insurance (10 EUR).


  • I'm giving this application all the (moral) endorsement I can. Not that I'm sure anybody cares what I think. But still, an editor-in-chief talking about the practical introduction of free licenses could be of great interest. --Oop (talk) 14:04, 17 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Works of Jbuket on this and this are realy good examples of promoting free licences in Ukraine. --Visem (talk) 19:23, 1 October 2017 (UTC)
