About the meetup[edit]

Joburg meetups are generally casual social events where we...

  • Drink coffee, beer, tea and some of us have Saturday lunch.
  • Chat about Wikipedia or any other topics we fancy.
  • Experienced Wikipedians help out new editors who have problems with editing wikipedia

You can expect to meet some very keen Wikimedians; however, this is also an open invite for anyone interested in finding out more about Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects such as Wikimedia Commons, Wikiversity and WikiSource.

We often get newish editors attending.

Location: Goethe Institut Sout Africa[edit]

The Goethe Institut South Africa; No. 119 Jan Smuts Ave, Parkwood.

The Goethe institute is quite easy to find as it is closest to the Johannesburg Zoo and the Zoo Lake. See directions below.
