We’d like to invite our members and wider UK community to the Wikimedia UK 2023 Community Meeting, taking place on Sunday 26th November, 12-2pm.
This online get-together will be a celebration of what our community has achieved in the last year, a recognition of that work through the Wikimedian of the Year awards, and an invitation to get involved with new and existing activities.
Over the last month or so, we’ve been reaching out to community members in a call for lightning talks, and we’re really excited by what we’ve now got lined up. It’s often the case that there’s a huge amount of work done by Wikimedians that others just don’t see, so we’re really happy to be able to highlight some of this activity.
After the lightning talks, we’ll be presenting the annual Wikimedian of the Year awards – there’s more information about those here, and nominations are open until the 10th November.
We’ll round off the meeting with an opportunities fair, where we’ll be showcasing some of the way that you can get involved (either as experienced Wikimedians, or those new to the movement), and ways in which Wikimedia UK can support you to do so.
This event is open to both members and non-members of Wikimedia UK, who’d like to find out more about Wikimedia work in the UK, and who’d like to get more involved!
Tickets are free, the event will be held on Zoom, and you can reserve your tickets now through Eventbrite.
