Hello Everyone,

Hope you are doing well and are safe. 

As you may know, I work in the Movement Communications team at the Wikimedia Foundation as a Senior Movement Communications Specialist (South Asia). In the last few months I have got the opportunity to get familiar with many of our community members and look forward to working closely. (Here is my Meta Page).

I am thrilled about sharing an incredible update with you- which I am sure many of us have been waiting for- Wikimania 2022!

Wikimania: The Festival Edition! will be taking place on 11-14 August, 2022. Wikimania is the Wikimedia movement’s annual conference celebrating all the free and open knowledge projects made possible by the volunteer community. The program will be multilingual, but this time with expanded language support.

Furthermore, the Wikimania COT has announced the opening of Affiliate grants and individual scholarships:

  1. Wikimania 2022 will have a grants program for affiliates to fund the organizing of Wikimania local events. These events could include local meetups and watch parties, affiliate led sessions.
  2. We are also offering scholarships for individual attendees to enable their participation in Wikimania 2022. Scholarships can cover things like childcare, meals, data packages and small hardware purchases.

Deadline: 3rd June, 2022

Let's bring the Wikimania 2022 Festival to life- together.
