Last year, for the 5th birthday, the WikidataCon
first international conference dedicated to Wikidata was organized in
Berlin. Waiting for its return in 2019, the local events continue! We

organize events in order to build a Wikidata group in their area. Even if
you're just starting editing, or you've never been organizing an event
before, you can be part of the Wikidata's sixth birthday!
The events will take place around October 29th, 2018 (it doesn't have to be

You will find the list of events that will take place around the world,
ideas of formats, ways to get funded, and documentation about organizing
We're excited to see many small or big Wikidata events happening everywhere!
