Wikimedia Conference in Berlin, April 2018

Please find below the announcement about the Wikimedia Conference 2018 that will take place in Berlin in April 2018. Since we have some new contributors and efforts to establish an active user group in Albania I would focus our efforts on having at least one local Wikimedia contributor that hasn’t been in a Wikimedia event before. This will hopefully help establish our community as a growing one that has new contributors that are actively participating in the movement.
Date: April 20 – April 22, 2018
Registration: November 29 – January 15, 2018


Dear Wikimedians,
It’s with great pleasure that I invite Wikimedia Affiliates, the WMF Board
of Trustees and staff, the Affiliations Committee, and the Funds
Dissemination Committee to the Wikimedia Conference 2018. The main
conference will take place in Berlin from April 20 to 22, 2018.

Wikimedia Deutschland staff and board are looking forward to creating and
hosting another event that contributes to the development of the Wikimedia
Movement. We are hoping to see a diverse group of participants this year,
and look forward to creating three days of working, thinking, and learning
together. The event is made possible through the generous financial support
of the Wikimedia Foundation.

As in the previous years, the program will be built along three thematic

Movement Strategy: The Wikimedia Conference will be one of the major forums
for conversations about the future of the movement. Together, we will
discuss how movement groups can implement Wikimedia’s new Strategic
Direction “Service and Equity”, and how roles, responsibilities and
resources can be shared across the movement.

Partnerships in the Wikimedia Movement: Based on the conversations at the
last Wikimedia Conference, Wikimania, and regional Wikimedia conferences,
we aim to continue to offer a space for conversations, experience sharing
and learning around partnerships within and outside the Wikimedia movement.

Capacity Building & Learning: We will again host a track with sessions that
are designed according to the participants’ needs, wishes and experiences
as expressed during the registration process.

Registration will open on the 29th of November, 2017. Cornelius Kibelka,
Program and Engagement Coordinator, and Daniela Gentner, Event Coordinator,
will keep you updated about the program design and the logistics in the
coming weeks and months.

On behalf of Wikimedia Deutschland, I am looking forward to welcoming many
of you in Berlin in April.

Kind regards,
