2015 WMCEE Map

This is to understand what we are to expect from the new CEE Meeting and to shape the basis of the meeting's agenda. We have been conducting the same survey before CEE Meeting 2014.

The core of the future meeting is sharing & learning, which happens in the form of:

  • sharing learnings from different (successful and unsuccessful) practices in the region;
  • practical workshops of projects (namely Wikidata) and different tools;
  • sharing projects that can be done with relatively low financial input;
  • collaborative work on future collaboration projects.

Thus, your input for the conference programme is to list:

  1. Valuable learnings: present an overview of a valuable learning you want to share with WMCEE group;
  2. Tools: name the tools that are most useful in your work and which could be useful for others in the region; share if there are tools that would be useful (maybe they can be developed?);
  3. Low-cost project from the community: please feature a low-cost project from your community.

Please also add your planned events / projects here WMCEE Calendar 2015.

  • Your program's strengths or what you are doing well. You can list here current, ongoing, and planned projects, etc.
  • Your program's weaknesses or what you could use help with. You can list here the projects you were going to do, or stopped doing, etc.

Poland[edit]

See also: Wikimedia Polska
  • Input for the conference programme
  1. Valuable learnings:
    1. Wiki Loves/Europena style contests - started in Berlin - focused on CEE based contests. The core idea of this would be not to make lectures about local contest (as it was in Kiev) - but rather short intro with some overall statistic and general remarks and then start discussion/sharing experiences/brainstorming for new ideas (User:Polimerek can shape the session);
    2. about textual contests - in the same way as the above - with preliminary overview of such contests. (it is harder than photo contest, as the local contest pages are usually in local languages). It could cover CEE Spring (a volunteer is needed to shape the session);
    3. Sharing administrative issues. What is a daily work-flow of documents in WMPL and how daily decisions are made and how does look like relations between our Board, treasurer, employees and accountant. We would suggest to avoid sharing during this session detailed country specific issues - as they are different in each country, but we can share general managerial methods, which might be replicable in other chapters;
    4. Crossborder GLAM cooperation - we need a critical mass for this - a discussion session with hope to establish such kind of cooperation. At the moment we have the beginning of cooperation with Goethe Institut, Polish Cultural Institutes, Hungarian Cultural Institutes and cooperation with Viadrina Univ. We were also talking about Austrian chapter reps. about the "Galicia" related project, which could be of interest for Austria, Hungary, Slovakia, Ukraine, Romania and Poland: en:Galicia (Eastern Europe)

  2. Tools:
    1. Mass upload using Vicunia uploader - especially useful for wikiexpeditions
  3. Low-cost project:
    1. we can do it in lighting talks formula + some time for general discussion at the end. We had quite a lot of such projects - so we can select 2/3 most successful and say few words about each.
  • Interested in attending
Polimerek (talk) 10:44, 23 July 2015 (UTC) + 3-4 other people from our chapter.
  • Strengths (or what you are doing well)
    We are good in organizing Wikiexpeditions (which was our original idea), various contests, local conferences and microgranting program.
    Weaknesses (or what you could use help with)
    cooperation with educative institutions, presence in main-stream media.
    Needs
    not enough volunteers ready to do things in the "real world" - better self-organization
    Questions
    How to deal with Poles - still not well answered ;-)
