Location : Great room Duration : 30 min.
Description :

Wiki Loves Monuments is an international annual, low-barrier photo competition. It has been organized by national teams in more than 75 countries around the world, and photo competitions like Wiki Loves Monuments have proven to be a good first project to organize for local teams. The concept has been especially successful in some parts of the world, we would like to explore the opportunities and challenges that Wiki Loves Monuments faces in (sub-Saharan) Africa, and how we could further develop the concept to make it both more accessible and more impactful. In this session, we will introduce to you what Wiki Loves Monuments is and how you could implement it perhaps in your country (10-15 min presentation), and after some questions (5 min), I would like to think with you what components of the competition work best in Africa, and what could perhaps be improved to make it more successful. I will collect these lessons and this input during and after the session, and report back to the international team and community, as the start of a process to improve the concept and infrastructure.
