Hello, This is User:Rangilo_Gujarati here basically from Gujarat and now in Pune, am planning an outreach event most probably a workshop in MS University Baroda, Gujarat during their forthcoming technical festival Footprints<http://www.msu-footprints.org/>. Also am the Campus Ambassador for India Education Program too, I need some input from you guys.
The organizers of this event have basically no idea about what a community is or how WP works, since I ll be targeting newbies I am planning to start from Introduction to WP, then an editing session and main motto behind this would be to start an active community in Baroda or Gujarat and get the contributors to EN and GU WP and commons too. Now the organizers are asking few questions like "Why anyone should attend it?", "What would be the exclusivity of the workshop?", "How can we (university and attendees) be benefited from this?". They are worried too much about "exclusivity", how to convince them that these type of sessions are some thing more than "exclusively in Footprints", "first time in gujarat" ?? Since I have no experience in conducting an outreach workshop independently I want your feedback on it, and what possibly should I answer them?. Please do reply with your valuable suggestions/critics. -- Thanks Arnav (ricku). (User:Rangilo_Gujarati) <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Rangilo_Gujarati>
