Remember that this month's Community Event Team office hours start in 1
hour!
I am afraid that the person who was planning to do Punjabi, and Hindi
translation for us is no longer attending.

[Wikimedia-l] Wikimedia Conference Grants Program Updates

2020-12-15 Thread Rachel Farrand
Hello everyone!

We would like to announce the dates for our next two upcoming rounds for
our Wikimedia Foundation conference grants program.


   -

   If you would like to apply for funding to hold an event between July -
   December 2021 your application deadline is: February 8, 2021
   -

   If you would like to apply for funding to hold an event between January
   - June 2022 your application deadline is: September 27, 2021


The majority of events in 2021 will likely be mostly or fully remote events
unless anything major changes in our COVID-19 risk assessment protocol
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:Risk_assessment_during_COVID-19>.
Following this protocol, some local events are possible in regions with low
COVID risk.

So far we have gained a lot of experience organizing remote events and
working alongside remote event organizers and are happy to meet and chat
about options and ideas for your community before you apply. We have
created some remote event guidelines here
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:Conference/Remote_Event_Guidelines>.
You can also read about some community efforts at Wikiproject: remote event
participation
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/WikiProject_remote_event_participation>.

We are happy to announce that we have approved two events for the first
half of 2021:

   -

   Arctic Knot: A Wikimedia Languages conference
   
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:Conference/WMNO/Arctic_Knot:_A_Wikimedia_Languages_conference>
   organized by Wikimedia Norge
   -

   WP20 Aniversario
   <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:Conference/WMES/WP20Aniversario>
   organized by Wikimedia España
   -

   We are in final discussions with two other organizing groups for
   possible events during this time frame and will update our meta page
   <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:Conference/Browse_applications>
   if and when they are approved.



Finally, we are also looking for any community members with event
organizing experience from Asia or South America who might be interested in
joining our conference grants committee
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:Conference_Grants/Committee> as we
currently don’t have representation from those regions. Once you read more
about our committee, you can apply on meta directly or email us back and
ask any questions you have.

Thank you & happy end of the year!

Rachel Farrand & Chen Almog

[Wikimedia-l] WMF Community Events Team first office hours: Thursday December 10

2020-12-07 Thread Rachel Farrand
Hello everyone!

The Wikimedia Foundation Community Events Team
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Foundation_Events_team> will
begin holding monthly office hours for any community members who are
interested. To start, this will be a place where people can come ask us
questions, get to know us, and have discussions. If only a handful of
people show up it will be completely informal but if a larger number of
people show up we will add a little bit of structure.

The first office hours will take place this Thursday, December 10 starting
at 15:00 UTC <https://zonestamp.toolforge.org/1607612429> and lasting for
an hour. Find the link to join on meta
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Foundation_Events_team/OfficeHours#Upcoming_office_hours>
.

Our Team Members who will be attending and general topics which we will
each be able to speak to:

   -

   Rachel Farrand, Senior Program Officer: Conference grants (thematic and
   growth events), accessibility, remote events in the Wikimedia context,
   planning for future office hours
   -

   Chen Almog, Senior Program Officer: conference grants (regional events),
   risk assessment, capacity building, the new Events portal
   -

   Joël Letang, Senior Events Strategist: event strategy, Wikimania,
   scholarships


We will move the time of the meeting around month-to-month in order to be
inclusive of more timezones. We will also be adjusting these office hours
as we go based on community feedback and are very open to changing the
scope of these office hours over time or incorporating community theme
requests, presentation requests or requests for outside speakers. In some
cases we will be using these office hours to test out different options for
remote conference software.

You can find more information about upcoming officer hours and add your
comments and questions here and on the talk page:
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Foundation_Events_team/OfficeHours

We hope to see you there!

[Wikimedia-l] Adding wording to the Wikimedia Foundation Friendly Space Policy around virtual events

2020-06-30 Thread Rachel Farrand
Hello everyone,


In order to adapt to current events and make the Wikimedia Foundation
Friendly Space Policy <
https://foundation.wikimedia.org/wiki/Friendly_space_policy> inclusive of
virtual events, we are proposing to add the new wording found at the end of
this email to the policy.

We are very open to any alternative wording suggestions that extend the
coverage of these policies to include virtual conferences/events and will
wait two weeks 15 July, 2020 before making the changes. If you would like
to discuss different wording ideas please do so on the discussion page of
the Friendly Space Policy on meta. <
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Talk:Friendly_space_policies#Adding_wording_to_the_Wikimedia_Foundation_FSP_around_virtual_events

Proposed changes:

First sentence now:

The Wikimedia Foundation is dedicated to providing a harassment-free venue
and conference experience for everyone….

First sentence proposed change:

The Wikimedia Foundation is dedicated to providing a harassment-free
venue, virtual
event, and conference experience for everyone….

Last sentence now:

We expect participants to follow these rules at Wikimedia Foundation
venues, all conference venues, and conference-related social events.

Last sentence proposed change:

We expect participants to follow these rules at Wikimedia Foundation

Vienna Hackathon and start gathering ideas. If multiple chapters or
organizations are interested, we hope to work together to figure out the

Any organizations interested in hosting should please create a Phabricator
ticket and associate it with the Developer-Relations project. Srishti and I
are happy to assist if needed.

Please email me at rfarr...@wikimedia.org with any questions or concerns. I
am not on the chapters@ list, so if there is anything that I should respond
to, make sure to keep me on CC. Also please forward this email anywhere you
think it might be useful.

 Hello,

 Does anyone have planned a meeting during Wikimania about next Hackathon's
 organization ?
 I believe it would be useful to know who of us still want to organize,
 after informations which was forwarded by former organizers, and how we
 could collaborate to choose the next (co-)organizer.

 I will be around the Wikimania Hackathon this afternoon and tomorrow, let
 me know if you're interested with this discussion.

  WMFr is still thinking about organizing Wikimedia Hackathon in 2015. We
 are currently identifying the technical, financial and especially human

  Frans, could you provide me/us your documentation or the link (Meta ?) ?
 It would be very useful.
 
  Wikimedia France really wants to organize an international event in 2015.
 
  Anyway, we believe that if another chapter wants to organize Hackathon
 it could be a waste of time for one of us to position our proposals against

  So if a sister entity positions herself clearly and seriously to
 organize Wikimedia Hackathon we can discuss it.

  As a subject of one/more hackathons I would like to recommend
  CoSyne
  [1].
  CoSyne is translation and multilingual synchronisation tool. The
  project
  was set up by Wikimedia Netherlands together with several
  universities
  and
  other partners, including the EU. The tool makes it possible to
  translate
  much more easier from one Wikipedia (etc) to another with much
  better
  quality translations than existing translating tools. It does not
  matter
  if
  an article is already written, it is possible with this tool to
  expand
  existing articles and to update articles with a new section when on
  one
  Wikipedia this was added. It makes it possible to exchange
  information
  in
  more languages and helps users to keep the articles up-to-date.
 
  I have tested the Bèta version of this tool and these tests were
  very
  successful.
