Hi African Wikimedians! 

There is going to be a GLAM-Wiki conference this fall: we would love to have your participation! It will be a great opportunity to learn more about different kinds of GLAM projects, and to learn about how Wikidata and Structured Data on Commons can help you advance partnerships! 

Both the scholarship and submission process are opening this week (see the organizer email below)!
