The Wikimedians of Chicago User Group is a Wikimedia user group in the United States city of Chicago. This user group aims to organize the Wikimedia community in Chicago and its surrounding areas.

Objectives and activities[edit]

  • Promote the use of Wikimedia projects by people in and around Chicago
  • Organize in-person gatherings of Wikimedians in and around Chicago
  • Help people in and around Chicago learn how to edit Wikimedia projects
  • Combat systemic bias on Wikipedia and support the existing work of the Art + Feminism user group in Chicago

History[edit]

Prior to the formation of this user group, there had been consistent Wikimedia activity in Chicago, including regular edit-a-thons, meetups, and collaborations with institutions. We aim to host regular meetups to forge regular working and social connections amongst editors in and around Chicago. Currently, we are not convinced that many editors in the region know each other well, and our work is quite isolated. The more we get to know each other, our work, and our skills, the more we are able to create a unified community of editors who can work together to develop successful events and projects.
