Mention was made concerning stationing a Wikimedia Ghana booth at the AODC conference along with the Wikipedia and Wikidata sessions we’d be running. Due to time constraints and the high cost involved it appears infeasible to include the budget of the booth in our rapid grant request.
There might be other ways to still keep the booth in the agenda and I’d be happy to hear of any suggestions.
Wikimedia Ghana Usergroup has an opportunity to participate at this years Africa Open Data Conference which will take place in Accra between 17 and 22 July next month. As many are aware, the mission of the Africa Open Data Collaborative closely parallels that of Wikimedia, and of Wikidata to be particular. As a result running a session about Wikidata would fit perfectly with the subject of the conference.
Two slots are available, on July 17 and the weekend before (we can use one or both). I’m inclined toward using the weekend to run a session on
And the 17th for either
On top of that, we can set up a booth to educate people about Wikip[m]edia in general.
I’m happy to hear what the community thinks and from anyone who would like to volunteer in anyway to put this together.
