Edinburgh Wikimedia Meetup Number 14[edit]

Date and time: Saturday 24 February 2024, 11:00-14:00[edit]

Location: The Shrub, 22 Bread St, Edinburgh EH3 9AF[edit]

Point of contact: Douglas Scott[edit]


The meetup will be an informal gathering with no formal agenda, but please feel free to add any topics that you'd like to raise for discussion.

Some suggested topics of conversation might be:

  • Wikimania 2024
  • How copyright impacts editing Wikipedia
  • Active Wikimedia UK projects in Scotland
  • Opportunities to get involved in Wiki research projects (in higher education)
  • <add additional suggested items here>

About the meetup[edit]

This is intended to include any interested Wikimedians who find themselves in Edinburgh or can make their way to Edinburgh on the day. Anyone who has attended previous meetups in Glasgow or Edinburgh encouraged to return to meet new faces! It will be a social gathering for Wikimedia enthusiasts, where we...

  • Have a bite to eat and a drink.
  • Chat about Wikipedia and any other topics we fancy!
  • Explore how we can encourage others to engage with Wikipedia and arrangements for future Edinburgh Wiki meetups.
  • Maybe edit a few Wikipedia articles or contribute to other Wiki projects.

This is mainly a casual social event. You can expect to meet some very keen Wikipedians and some newbies. However this is an open invitation to anyone interested in finding out more about Wikipedia, other Wikimedia projects, projects re-using Wikipedia, and other collaborative wiki projects. Feel free to come along and raise these discussions!

I hope to make this happen monthly or once every two months, always on the last Saturday of the month, starting at 11:00am.


Location of the Shrub Cafe' at the Zero Waste Hub at 22 Bread Street, Edinburgh.

The Shrub Coop cafe is extremely accessible via train for those travelling from outside the city via Waverley station, and via bus for Edinburgh residents. It offers food, drinks, and WiFi and should give us plenty of room to meet and have a chat after work!
