You are invited to join the official launch of Wiki Loves Living Heritage! 

In 2023, Wiki Loves Living Heritage celebrates living heritage on the 20th anniversary of the UNESCO 2003 Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage.

Join the launch event on 17 March 13–14.30 UTC to learn & get excited about the project!

We are inviting affiliates and volunteers to join the activities

  • Start organizing: Team up with the local heritage communities and UNESCO intangible cultural heritage coordinators and create bigger or smaller activities together. Find your local contacts here.

  • Share widely: Use the Wiki Loves Living Heritage site and all the social media channels of the project and the partners to share your activities online. The campaign highlights living heritage around the world throughout 2023.

  • Contribute to Wikimedia projects: Make living heritage more visible on Wikimedia projects by adding data to Wikidata, photographing and adding media to Wikimedia Commons and editing Wikipedia articles. We are looking for people to help import the national inventories of living heritage to make the local heritage elements visible in the project.

  • Inspire and be inspired: Help others contribute to Wikimedia projects by sharing your learnings and models with other affiliates, communities and heritage coordinators.

Stay updated!

Contact us for help connecting with the local Living Heritage coordinators / Wikimedia affiliates and to discuss your ideas.

Best regards,

Sadik Shahadu, Communications Manager
