Abstract (up to 300 words to describe your proposal)

Looking at the data concerning those who have lived or currently are in Africa and not forgetting to mention how others can learn about the cultural heritage in Africa (In fact, everything about Africa), we notice that more is needed. This has been noticed while editing Wikidata and after discussing with some experienced affiliate user group members, active editors and developers who find it interesting to talk about this to the communities, then this comes to highlight the ways we can increase more about Africa especially the aspect of cultural heritage using sister projects which concern the use of Wikidata( This mainly targets the developer communities).

Committee decision[edit]


Comments (To be considered before February 16th, 2018):

  • Also deal with the use of Wikidata for sharing African Cultural Heritage.
  • Change the title as it does not reflects what the presentation is about.
  • If the comments are taken into consideration, we will add 10 min to the time of the presentation.
