The Wikimedia Foundation will be supporting individuals and groups planning to hold Wikipedia 20 celebration events through the Rapid Grants program. Learn more on the Wikipedia 20 Grants page.
This Wikipedia 20 Meta-Wiki page is an initial framework the global Wikimedia community can use to coordinate around the 20th birthday of Wikipedia. We are celebrating how humans made Wikipedia what it is, and only humans can help sustain and grow it. We are celebrating 20 years human!
This space serves as:
- A space to organise and plan events and meetups to celebrate the 20th;
- Tips and inspiration on how to organise and run a virtual event;
- A collection of tips for pitching to press and getting the word out on social media.
- A place to share birthday photos, videos, stories and more.
- * Find an event nearby or remotely or find some helpful resources to help you plan one.
- Explore what the Wikimedia Foundation is doing for Wikipedia 20.
- A place to share birthday photos, videos, stories, favourite articles and more.
- Readers are encouraged to tweet with the hashtag Special:MyLanguage/Wikipedia 20/Media#social.
