(sorry for crost-list posting)
Every year since Wikidata went live, on October 29th, 2012, the Wikidata community celebrates its anniversary all around the world. Local groups organize meetups, workshops, share cake and greetings, to celebrate the work of the editors building up the knowledge base and its ecosystem of tools.
Last year, for the 5th birthday, the WikidataCon, first international conference dedicated to Wikidata was organized in Berlin. Waiting for its return in 2019, the local events continue! We encourage the community to meet up, the chapters and user groups to organize events in order to build a Wikidata group in their area. Even if you're just starting editing, or you've never been organizing an event before, you can be part of the Wikidata's sixth birthday!
The events will take place around October 29th, 2018 (it doesn't have
to be on this exact day). You can find a lot of information on this
You will find the list of events that will take place around the world, ideas of formats, ways to get funded, and documentation about organizing events.
We're excited to see many small or big Wikidata events happening everywhere!
