Wikimedia Conference 2018

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,


Executive Director
