Hello all,

The Celtic Knot organizing team is very happy to announce that the conference dedicated to minoritized languages on the Wikimedia projects will be back for its 6th edition, on July 1-2, 2022.

Broader than the Celtic family languages, the event gathers people from communities and languages that are underrepresented on the Wikimedia projects. It is a place where people working on growing and maintaining their communities can meet, learn from each other, and support each other on topics like community growth, technical tools, or collaboration with partners. Wikidata, as the platform to centralize, organize, and distribute multilingual content, is a strong focus of the event.

For the Celtic Knot 2022, we want to build a light and sharp program, with a strong focus on skills and knowledge exchange. Thanks to the input from the community, we identified several important topics that we will address during interactive workshops and guided discussions. We will make sure that participants can connect with people from like-minded growing communities, share their experiences with others, and bring back what they learned to their communities.

This year, we’re experimenting with a hybrid format for the conference: while the core program will take place entirely online on Friday, July 1st, and Saturday, July 2nd, we will encourage local groups and language communities to organize onsite events before, during or after the conference. The core program will be available in replay to make sure that the content is accessible asynchronously.

The program of the conference is still under construction, as well as the concept for onsite events, participants support, and various other logistical aspects. We will regularly post updates on the talk page of the event on Meta.

The core organizing team is composed of Daria Cybulska, Richard Nevell (WMUK) and Léa Lacroix (WMDE). If you have ideas or suggestions, if you would like to get involved in the conference as a helper, feel free to contact any of us.

We’re looking forward to seeing you at the Celtic Knot!

On behalf of the organization team,

Léa Lacroix
