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 two full days of training in the pre-conference days of Wikimedia Conference 2018. Participants who would like to join should express interest in the registration form when registering to the conference. We will be selecting participants based on our selection criteria, and creating the agenda collaboratively with participants. Follow the event page for updates!
