Hi Wikimedia Asia chapters and usergroups,
I wanted to share with you details of the upcoming Smithsonian Asian
American editathon campaign for September 2015, which is also being joined
by Wikimedia Thailand and hopefully others in Asia (following a discussion
The Smithsonian folks have a pretty significant publicity effort they can
put out, and I think the Smithsonian is a well-known name globally (and
also Museum of Modern Art in NYC too), so it would be great if we could
promote participation among the different members of the Wikimedia Asia
Project as well.
The Smithsonian people plan to hold events at museums in about 5-10 US
cities (and also has ties to art spaces in Hong Kong, Tokyo, Seoul, etc),
so pairing that with international events could be mutually beneficial (as
we did with the Art+Feminism campaign).
If your chapter or usergroup is interested , we'd be very glad to put you
in touch with the Smithsonian folks who can share their own contacts in
