Learning and Evaluation/News and Events
Last year, we experimented with Community Engagement Insights—a comprehensive project to hear from Wikimedia contributors, and gather input to design Wikimedia Foundation programs and support. We are presenting the findings on Tuesday, October 10, at 9 AM PST. In this blog, we talk about the project, which included the Wikimedia contributor and communities survey. Read the report on line.
Pictures help us to communicate feelings and ideas across diverse cultures and beyond language barriers. The goal of this campaign is to create a deck of cards that can be used in activities at Wikimedia events throughout the movement to help Wikimedians connect and share. In these ice-breaker activities, participants can pick a card that reflects their hopes, fears or expectations for that day, and then during a round of sharing, each person shares and explains the card they chose.
To expand Wikimedia communities’ efforts, we need to guarantee open access to resources that support this very important work. The Wikimedia Resource Center is a hub designed in response to this issue: it is a single point of entry for Wikimedians all over the world to access the resources and staff support they need to develop new initiatives, and expand existing ones.
We will be hosting a public event online to present the conversation, our findings, and what are possible next steps to continue supporting leadership in our movement. The event will take place on Thursday, November 16, at 9:00 am PST (1700 UTC). You can watch the livestream here, and ask question via IRC on #wikimedia-office.
