Abstract (up to 300 words to describe your proposal)

We propose three elements associated to Wiki Loves Africa this year

  1. An exhibition of winning pictures for Wiki Loves Africa 2017 !!!
  2. A panel to discuss WLA
  3. A workshop featuring "teaching tools and integration of WLA images associated to WLA" (see WikiIndaba conference 2018/Submissions/Wiki Loves Africa Workshop)

This proposal is about the panel :

  • a 5 min presentation of this year results, participating teams, success of the photo-stories, and other high-lights,
  • immediately followed by a relaxed discussion (roundtable ?) over the future of Wiki Loves Africa (pretty much as was done last year... a bunch of chairs, a paperboard, some pens, a note taker...
What will attendees take away from this session?
  1. learn about a project and its outcome
  2. will gain insights of how a project is set up and run (including grant-wise)
  3. will actively participate building up the next WLA
Theme of presentation
  • WikiCulture & Community
For workshops and discussions, what level is the intended audience?

Participants of previous Wiki Loves Africa + Wikimedia Foundation staff + Whoever is interested

Length of session (if other than 25 minutes, specify how long)

55 minutes

Will you attend WikiIndaba if your submission is not accepted?


Slides or further information (optional)

No slides. Need a paperboard or flipchart.

Special requests

For the exhibition, we would need a prominent blank wall and exhibition space.

We (Lodewijk and I) suggest that this discussion not be held in parallel to WikiIndaba conference 2018/Submissions/Making Wiki Loves Monuments thrive across Africa (if both accepted) as people interested in photo shooting may be involved in both projects.

Is this Submission a Draft or Final?
