Hello GLAM Wiki community!

This email is to announce that the GLAM Wiki: The Culture, Heritage and Wikimedia Conference  will take place in Montevideo, Uruguay, in November 16-18, 2023. Save the dates!

Last week, the Wikimedia Foundation and the Conference Committee approved our grant application [1] to host the conference in Montevideo, Uruguay. The event will take place in the School of Information & Communications of the University of the Republic [2], a beautiful building surrounded by a public park within a walking distance from the "rambla", a walking path next to the Río de La Plata River.

Our community has a lot of important topics to discuss in person, from better supporting our tools for content partnerships with cultural heritage institutions, to decolonizing knowledge, to more access to capacity building and networking to grow the next generation of GLAM Wiki collaborations. 

To better engage with the community in the design of this event, we're offering a launch event, taking place on April 13 at 5 PM UTC. We want to learn from you! Please register on Meta [3] to receive the Zoom link. We will be offering simultaneous interpretation in Spanish & Portuguese.

Want to get even more involved? Join our Scholarship or Program Committee. [4]

Looking forward to seeing you all in beautiful Uruguay.
