Dear fellow Wikimedians,
Our nine working groups are neck-deep in gathering information that
enriches their work toward recommendations. They are starting to seek
advice and perspectives from within and outside of the movement, and
work hard to develop changes to our movement structures.
This is the last week to send us your applications for a strategy
salon grant; if you’re interested in running a small, strategy-focused
event with your affiliate’s community, apply for a grant by May 31. We
are again hosting a space at Wikimania this year; if you want to talk
movement strategy at the event, submit your proposal (details below).
Community conversations are running from now through September. Join
in  and share your thoughts on how to build our future.
== Send us your strategy salon grant applications by May 31 ==
The deadline to submit an application for a strategy salon grant is
just around the corner. If you would like to dive deep into the
movement strategy with your affiliate’s community, you can apply for
an in-person event grant of between $500 and $1500 by May 31. Send in
your application by Friday! Kelsi will host an office hours this
Wednesday, May 29 at 12:00 UTC on Zoom  where you can ask all your
last-minute questions. Anything you need to know about strategy salon
application grants is on Meta .
== Come and discuss the movement strategy at Wikimania ==
The movement strategy will be at Wikimania! The core team will host a
space during the event. Our main activities will focus on engagement
with working groups and the broader community on the first outline of
recommendations for change. But we also want to hear from you. If you
have an idea for a session or discussion about our future, please send
us your session proposal. We are seeking interactive formats about
building the future of Wikimedia; the free knowledge ecosystem now and
in the future; Wikimedia‘s strategic direction and how we advance
here; and creating change through collaboration. The deadline to
submit is June 1.
== Share your thoughts on the community conversations report March/April ==
We are currently working on the community conversations report for
May, which offers an overview of all the conversations that are
happening worldwide about our future. We’d like to know what you would
like to see and read about in these reports. Have a look at our report
from March/April on Meta  and let us know what you think about the
content and the format. Does it capture the conversations well? Are
there views or insights that you feel are missing? You can share your
input directly on Meta or via your own language’s community forums
(for Hindi, Arabic, Mandarin, German, Portuguese, and Spanish).
== Building on the movement strategy conversations at the Wikimedia Summit ==
This year’s Wikimedia Summit was a key forum for movement strategy. It
enabled affiliates to connect directly with working groups. Working
groups have been using the insights gained from discussions during the
event to help guide their work. The Wikimedia Summit 2019 report 
offers a detailed overview of this that you can use to help take these
discussions forward during community conversations.
If you’d prefer to hear rather than read about the movement strategy
discussions at the Wikimedia Summit, check out the video of April’s
monthly activities meeting . Tanveer Hasan from our Information and
Knowledge Management team outlines the central points and outcomes for
each of the working groups from the event. A big thank you to the
Summit team for all their hard work in making the strategy discussions
If you have any questions or would like to connect about the movement
strategy, please feel free to contact me and my team.
