We're looking for extra hands to help with he smooth running of this
year's Wikimania, so I and the rest of the team would be extremely
grateful if any of you would consider giving a few hours of your time.
We will need volunteers to:
staff the registration desk, especially on Wednesday, Friday, and
Saturday, when we expect to be at our busiest
direct attendees around the venue, and between the venue and other
points (eg tube stations and hotels)
staff the information desk, assisting attendees with queries
help with streaming/recording sessions.
That's a non-exhaustive list, but if any of those roles appeal to you, or
if you're interested in helping in another capacity, please complete the
form at https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1dzXSoAnHF6StkBA2mKIklse6gZA6Uw-EIT2egTLC3ew/viewform
or email me with any questions at ha...@wikimanialondon.org. Being an
editor is not a prerequisite, so please do share this with anyone else
you think might be interested.
For those of you in or around London (which I appreciate is a minority on
this list), we are holding informal social events for volunteers in the
weeks running up to Wikimania so that volunteers can get to know each
other and get to know the the team, and these will be a great opportunity
to learn more about Wikimania and get involved. These are scheduled for
Sunday evenings: 22 June, 6 July, and 20 July (18:00-20:00); if there is
significant demand, we may consider scheduling further events. If you'd
like to come to any of these events, please let Harry know by email
(ha...@wikimanialondon.org) or sign up on the wiki at
Any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
