Dear Wikimedia colleagues:

I am developing a proposal for a video series that's designed to introduce Wikimedia to new contributors (particularly in GLAM and education programs), and to motivate them to participate in the community in a constructive way. I would appreciate your input. The video is intended for translation into multiple languages; there are already volunteers for Spanish and German translation.

The proposal's main draft page is here:

The proposal talk page is here; it includes a draft outline of specific subjects to cover: talk:IEG/Motivational_and_educational_video_to_introduce_Wikimedia

Please note that the scope and budget of the project are still under consideration. At this point it would be especially helpful to have input on the subjects that the video should cover, and how best to cover them. This information will help as the project scope and budget are refined.

Please add your questions and comments to the talk page.

If you would like to support the project with your endorsement, please do so here:

If you would like to volunteer to translate the video, please email me or comment on the talk page.

Thanks and regards,
