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
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Celtic_Knot_Conference_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!
