Location of Wiki meetup @ 4pm: CCA Terrace (upstairs) cafebar, 350 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow, G2 3JD.[edit]

CCA blurb: "CCA: Centre for Contemporary Arts is Glasgow’s hub for the arts. Our year-round programme includes cutting-edge exhibitions, film, music, literature, spoken word, festivals, Gaelic and performance. At the heart of all activities is the desire to work with artists, commission new projects and present them to the widest possible audience.
Previously home to The Third Eye Centre (1975-1991), the building is steeped in history and the organisation has played a key role in the cultural life of the city for decades. We operate a unique open source programming policy where we offer organisations and individuals space in the building to programme their own events. In 2015-16, CCA worked with 244 programme partners across 1,011 events and 28 festivals.


In April 2015, CCA won the award for Best Cultural Venue in The Glasgow Awards highlighting the quality of the impressive programme presented by the venue and its partners. This broad and experimental programme encourages a diverse audience to experience the arts, with 334,511 admissions to the venue in the past year.... Entrance to all our exhibitions and many events is free.
In 2015, we launched our public engagement programme which aims to extend access to CCA and has – at its heart – the prospect of cultural and social change explored through art. In 2015-16, 60 activities took place in CCA and in communities throughout Glasgow, reaching 2,238 participants.
Saramago Café Bar (downstairs) offers a relaxed environment and a great menu during the day as well as lively place to hang out in the evenings. Free wi-fi is available throughout the building. Independent shops Aye-Aye Books and Welcome Home are located in the entrance area, offering a wide range of publications, craft and design to take home.
CCA is supported by Creative Scotland, Glasgow City Council, Glasgow Life and Esmée Fairbairn Foundation."


Add your name to this list if you can make it to our eighth meeting (Lucky number 8!). You don't have to be an existing editor to attend - we'd love to see you if you'd just like to find out more!

Please also invite any other Scottish Wikimedia people you know (or have had wiki dealings with) – spread the word!

About the meetup[edit]

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

  • Chat about Wikipedia, Wikimedia and any other topics we fancy. How to grow the community in Scotland, anyone? What kind of events would we like to see in the future?
  • Eat snacks/meals and drink some tea/coffee/beers.

It's mainly a casual social event. You can expect to meet some very keen Wikipedians, however this is also 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!
