From Wikimedia UK
Members newsletter, December 2013
Review: Wiki Loves Monuments awards ceremony:
10th December saw the awards ceremony for the winners of the Wiki Loves Monuments UK photography competition take place at the Wikimedia UK office.
Message from a Trustee: Joseph Seddon:
They say if you walk far enough, you will at sometime come to some place. Go straight long enough, and you will end up where you were. Up until now this has merely been a paradigm, a pattern, that happens in other people's lives.
Hello from the Office: Stuart Prior:
Well, I've been at Wikimedia UK for a month now and there's a steep learning curve. Having come from a very corporate background it's been a slight change of ethos, and a welcome one at that.
Free Knowledge Advocacy Group EU:
The Free Knowledge Advocacy Group EU is a proposed collection of Wikimedia chapters which are looking at ways to improve copyright regulations within the European Union by promoting free access to, and re-use of human knowledge.
Upcoming: Anybody but Burns editathon:
Ask someone to name a Scottish poet, the chances are you will get Robert Burns in response. He is by far Scotland's most famous poet, with Burns Night every year celebrating his life and poetry.
Training the Trainers programme:
As a part of Wikimedia UK's remit to support Wikimedia outreach projects and develop volunteer skills, we deliver a series of workshops as part of our Train the Trainers programme where volunteer Wikimedians are taught to deliver effective training.
Wikipedia supporters share their love of free knowledge:
The annual Wikipedia fundraising campaign took place over December with the appearance of fundraising banners across the different language sites.
