El Grupo de colaboradores de Wikimedia en Islandia busca organizar actividades para involucrar al público islandés en la edición de los sitios de Wikimedia y también para los actuales colaboradores de Wikimedia.


Los preparativos para crear un capítulo de Wikimedia en Islandia comenzaron a inicios de 2013. Hubo cuatro reuniones entre febrero y mayo. Se acordó trabajar para lograr el reconocimiento y el registro legal.


Lo primero y más importante es aumentar la participación. La primera meta del grupo de usuarios es aumentar el número de editores muy activos (más de 100 ediciones cada mes) a 15. Se han organizado noches-Wikipedia semanales de participación abierta en la Biblioteca Nacional y Universitaria de Islandia para ayudar en el proceso de aprender como contribuir a los proyectos de Wikimedia (ver: noches-Wikipedia semanales (en islandés)).

El segundo objetivo es conseguir materiales libres de instituciones públicas para incluirlo en los proyectos de Wikimedia.

Report on activities

Report for first year (March 14th 2014 - March 13th 2015)

In the period of January to May 2014 Wikimedians of Iceland (WMIS) held open meetings in the National and University Library of Iceland. The decision to hold the meetings was made at a conference that was held in December 2013 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Icelandic Wikipedia. [1] On that same occasion WMIS freed photos, obtained from the National Archives, from an important historical event in Icelandic history, the protests because of Iceland’s participation in the founding of NATO in 1949. [2]

People were invited and encouraged to attend and be tutored by experienced users in editing Wikipedia and participating in other Wikimedia projects. Attendance was lower than hoped for but the meetings were effective in raising awareness. WMIS members attended radio as well as newspaper interviews.

The work of WMIS entered a hiatus during the summer and focus was put on gaining a formal relationship with the WMF in order to be able to communicate with third parties as a legitimate actor.

In 2015 Icelanders celebrate a centenary of women’s suffrage. We applied for and received a grant 50.000 ISK (364 USD) which was used to print a life size poster and smaller posters. We obtained public domain photos from the National Museum documenting that historical moment and are now available on Commons [3] Again open meetings, now with more focused advertisment, were people were invited and encouraged to attend were organised with disappointing turnouts.

Looking to the future, WMIS, wants to a) attract more active users to build a vibrant Wikimedia community b) free photos locked in institutions
