In preparation for the upcoming Wikimedia Conference 2018 – which will take place from April 20 to 22 in Berlin, Germany – we again launch a call for a “Visiting Wikimedian”. This initiative aims to transfer practical knowledge from the German chapter to other Wikimedia movement affiliates and provides us with an outside view.
The scope of a “Visiting Wikimedian” is mainly to support the organization of the Wikimedia Conference in terms of logistics and program. The “Visiting Wikimedian” will be involved in all essential steps of the planning and organizing process and will be able to contribute in multiple ways. We are open to designing the tasks together, according to the Visiting Wikimedian’s skills and experiences and her or his affiliate’s needs. We are especially looking for a person who can apply the knowledge to an upcoming event, for example if the affiliate is hosting a regional or international conference.
