WikiBrasil 2012 is the first national meeting of the Brazilian community, planned to be held in São Paulo in October 2012, with the participation of volunteers from seven different cities. With this project, we want to promote WMF projects and to get more experienced in organizing such events, preparing ourselves for organizing regional meetings in the major cities in Brazil in the next six months. Also, we plan to define collaboratively the main projects to be done by Wikimedia Brasil with the participation of the community in general. The attendants will present the past and the present of Wikimedia Brasil Movement, and they'll have the opportunity to define our future actions, during creative sessions (unconferences, working groups, panels and general discussions).

Project scope and list of activities
Funding for this project will pay for travel, accommodation and transportation expenses of the attendees of WikiBrasil 2012, as well as the venue location, catering and equipments to be used during the conference.
Fit to strategy
The project align with WMF Strategic Plan to increase participation and reach in countries of the so-called Global South and to improve quality in projects that we are more involved in. In order to achieve this, we intent to organize a national meeting to be held in São Paulo, during which the attendants will be able to define the next steps of the whole movement, including the Wikimedia Brasil chapter activities.
We expect to present us as a potential partner to run the Brazil Program.
Measures of success
We will consider this project a success if we get:
- 25 ideas for activities to be done in the next 6 months;
- a good general feedback from the attendees.
