The WikiSeder is a secular celebration of wiki wisdom and free culture in the age of the quarantini. As we pass through our current plague, let us come together from our lockdowns to retell stories of liberation and crisis overcome through fellowship and information-sharing.
It was held for Monday April 13, 2020, the sixth night of Passover, and also the day after Easter. It will be livestreamed on Wikipedia Weekly Network, and will be supported by the community of Wikimedia New York City.
