The Wikimedians of the Caribbean Usergroup is a Wikimedia user group for the peoples of the Caribbean and the Caribbean Diaspora, bringing together cultures and languages, and also the communities with their diasporas.

To join please add your username to the Interested in Participating section below and/or the membership form.

Objectives[edit]

As with Wikimedians of the Levant, there has not been sufficient participation to establish individual groups, so it has been decided to pursue a group to support the whole region. There is particular interest in supporting languages like Haitian Creole that are particular to the region, developing content covering underrepresented regional topics, and also to support offline access for areas that do not otherwise have access.

Background[edit]

  • An early group of Caribbean Wikimedians was formed at WikiConference North America, at Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio, October 20th, 2018.
