Subject: [Wikimedia Announcements] Our Visiting Wikimedian initiative #wmcon
To: wikimediaannounce-l <>

Hi all,

Following up on our Wikimedia Conference report 2016[1], we have now
published more information about our “Visiting Wikimedian” initiative
that we kicked-off with Teele Vaalma from Wikimedia Eesti this year.
This initiative aims to transfer practical knowledge from the German
chapter to other Wikimedia movement affiliates and provides us with an
outside view.

Teele wrote a blog post on the movement blog, describing her time in
Berlin and her work to support us in organising the conference. It’s
really worth a read, as she provides insights into cross chapter
exchange and knowledge transfer.[2]

We have also set up a page (on Meta!) that describes the pilot that we
started this year. We would like to continue this for the Wikimedia
Conference 2017 and now start looking for the next Visiting
Wikimedian.[3] We are especially looking for a person who can apply
the knowledge to an upcoming event, for example if the affiliate is
hosting a regional or international conference. If you are interested
in becoming a Visiting Wikimedian, please reach out to me directly
until mid September.

A special thanks goes out to Wikimedia Eesti for being so supportive
of the idea and to Teele for doing such an awesome job!
