Dear Wikimedians,


Three months ago, we welcomed many of you in Berlin to work, discuss and get inspired at the Wikimedia Conference 2017. We have now published our extensive and colorful grant report for this event, and you can read it on Meta:


In the meantime, the documentation of all sessions is complete. Check it out on Meta as well:


While preparing the report, we have also written three learning patterns to capture and share our experiences with other movement event organizers.


1) “Timing, Communication, Preparation: How to support your event participants in the best way to get a Schengen Visa”,_Communication,_Preparation:_How_to_support_your_event_participants_in_the_best_way_to_get_a_Schengen_Visa


2) “Briefing calls with speakers: A simple way to improve conference sessions”


3) “The Buddy Project: Let’s make your conference more newbie friendly!”!


And if you think, “wow, that’s a lot!”: David Saroyan, Visiting Wikimedian at Wikimedia Deutschland from January until April, wrote a blog post about his experience in the Wikimedia blog:


We would like to thank all participants, partners, affiliates and experts who have contributed to making this such a great event, and the Wikimedia Foundation for their generous support.


Thank you,

Happy reading,


Cornelius, Nicole, Daniela and Wenke
(the WMCON team)
