Wikimedia Community User Group Wales (officially: Grŵp Defnyddwyr Cymuned Wicimedia Cymru) is a group formed by active members of Welsh Wikimedia projects who are interested in organizing and participating in outreach activities on a Welsh Country level.

Members of the current user group have been active for several years now, as individuals, as a community and as part of Wikiprojects (Coleg Cymraeg, National Library of Wales, Wicipop, Wici Môn...) and in collaboration with Wikimedia UK, engaging in activities such as workshops, hackathons, train the trainers programmes, edit-a-thons, and other education related events.


Discussions originally took place in our community page on Wikipedia, and archived here. The current discussions can be found here.
