Hi Wiki-Yorkers, You are invited to join the Wikimedia NYC community on April 13 for our monthly "WikiWednesday" evening salon (7-9pm) and knowledge-sharing workshop at Babycastles gallery by 14th Street / Union Square in Manhattan.
Special this month, a Mini-Video opportunity for individuals to share their Wikipedia experiences (during pre-meeting, 6-7pm, and in side-office during regular meetup): A videographer will be present to record 1-3 minute Mini-Videos of folks saying anything about their Wikipedia-related projects, whether an edit-a-thon they joined (Art+Feminism or others), an article they edited, or a class project they were a part of. (Videos will be uploaded to Wikimedia Commons and YouTube. With the time we have, anyone may present a video. Rehearse your talk before you come. You may share an experience, give a lesson, make a presentation, or say what you like. The audience might be anyone searching for videos of Wikipedians talking about Wikipedia. This will be an amateur effort.) We will include a look at the organization and planning for our chapter, and expanding volunteer roles for both regular Wikipedia editors and new participants. 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 (Art+Feminism!) and upcoming edit-a-thons, and other outreach activities. After the main meeting, pizza/chicken/vegetables and refreshments and video games in the gallery! We will also decide on our chapter's votes for the global Wikimedia Foundation board at this meeting: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Affiliate-selected_Board_seats/2016/Nominations ***** WikiWednesday Details: April 13 @ Babycastles, 137 West 14th Street 6:00pm - 7:00pm Mini-Video hour 7:00pm - 9:00pm Regular meeting: Introduction for new participants, Noshing, Chapter projects Agenda and RSVP on Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Meetup/NYC https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Meetup/NYC#Sign_up (RSVP on meetup.com: http://www.meetup.com/WikimediaNYC/ ) Newcomers are very welcome!
