UK virtual Wikimedia Meetup 9[edit]

Date and time: Wednesday 23 February 2022 19:00—21:30
(join at any time you can, no need to stay for the whole event)

Location: Online
We will use Zoom video chat, the link is below. the wub will host.

You can expect to meet some very keen Wikimedians, and complete newbies are also welcome, as is anyone interested in finding out more about Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects. We typically chat about goings-on in the Wiki-verse and life in general, and sometimes will work together on some editing. If you have suggestions for topics, please add them below.

Note that we're using video conferencing, but there's no obligation to have your camera on if you prefer not to show your face. Or indeed your microphone: some people do just come along and listen in.

Feel free to join from anywhere you may be, in the UK or elsewhere! And please invite any Wikimedia people you know (or have had wiki dealings with) who might be interested – spread the word!

If you guys are interested then I'd like to tell you about what Women in Red are doing next month. We are running Wikipedia Wednesdays starting on the 9th (looking for new recruits). We are partnered with CARE International and WMUK and I'm hoping you are intrigued. We are also organising training at Anglia Ruskin and I'm told this includes writing drama plays about Women in Red.
