Hi Wiki Yorkers, You are invited to join the Wikimedia NYC community in October for our "WikiWednesday" evening salon and knowledge-sharing workshop at Babycastles gallery by 14th Street / Union Square in Manhattan.
**This month, we will also host a Newcomer's Wiki Workshop for those who want to get started on the project!** We will also include a look at our annual plan and budget ideas, to see if the chapter is able to fiscally sponsor more ongoing projects tied to our core mission of expanding and diversifying free knowledge. We welcome the participation of our friends from the Free Culture movement and from educational and cultural institutions interested in developing free knowledge projects. We will also follow up on plans for recent and upcoming editathons, and other outreach activities.
