Wikimedia Conference 2017 in Berlin

Date: March 31–April 2, 2017

Registration: November 18–January 8, 2016

Dear Wikimedians,

It is my pleasure to invite Wikimedia Affiliates, the WMF Board of Trustees
and staff, the Affiliations Committee, and the Funds Dissemination
Committee to join us in Berlin for the Wikimedia Conference 2017. The
conference is hosted by Wikimedia Deutschland and will take place from March
31 to April 2, 2017. WMCON17 is made possible by the financial support of
WMF and we are working closely together to make this event a success.

As in 2016, the Wikimedia Conference will have three programmatic tracks
that are closely intertwined:

WMCON will be one of the platforms where conversations on Movement
Strategy will
happen. In Berlin, we want to work on developing a strategic vision for the
future of our movement and use the opportunity to shape our identity,
collaboration and responsibilities together.

The Movement Partnerships track will address questions around building
sustainable partnerships. We will work on ways of developing partnerships
with content and funding partners as well as like-minded organizations.

Capacity Building & Learning will again focus on practical support and
sharing of experiences among Wikimedia organizations and groups.

You are invited to join us for three days of working, thinking, and
learning. Bringing all movement organizations and groups together will give
us the opportunity to incorporate diverse perspectives and experiences into
the program.

In the coming days, you will hear more about the program design process
from the curator of the Wikimedia Conference, Nicole Ebber, and the Program
and Engagement Coordinator, Cornelius Kibelka. Together with Wenke Storn
and Daniela Genter from our event team they will keep you updated about all
things program and logistics in the coming weeks and months.

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

Kind regards,

Christian Rickerts
Geschäftsführender Vorstand / Executive Director
