Dear Wikimedia Community Members,
We are happy to announce the Core Organizing Team (COT) for Wikimania 2022!
This year’s Core Organizing Team members are:
Anton Protsiuk, Antoni Mtavangu, Evelin Heidel (Scann), Houcemeddine Turki (Csisc), Kayode
Yussuf (Kayusyussuf), NANöR, Omar David Sandoval Sida (Omar_sansi), Richard Knipel
(Pharos), Sandra Aceng, and Venus Lui .
This talented group of volunteers from around the world was selected from more than 70
excellent applications. They will work with you over the next six months to organize our
annual flagship event, designing a Wikimania that brings our community together and
celebrates our movement.
Wikimania 2022 will be a virtual main event, with the option for communities across the
movement to host in person events where possible. There will be grant funding for these in
person events – more information to come on Wikimania mailing list .
In the coming weeks, the COT will be inviting your ideas and suggestions on what Wikimania
2022 should look like – what would you like to see more of? What should we keep from last
year ? What should be different? And of course we’ll need your contribution to the
event as volunteers. More to be shared soon and do not hesitate to share your thoughts
with us on the Wikimania 2022 discussion page
Thanks and here’s to a great Wikimania 2022!
on Behalf of the Wikimania Committee and the Wikimedia Foundation team
