Greetings from CIS-A2K!
In June, we held our first regional Wikidata Workshop, “Wikidata Workshop: South India”, wherein existing Wikimedians from the five Southern states were given an introduction to Wikidata. CIS-A2K has also been working with the Annamayya Library in Guntur and in doing so, Tallapaka Pada Sahityam, a compilation of over fourteen thousand Telugu compositions is now being made available on Wikisource. In addition to supporting the Odia Wikipedians' Asian Athletics Championship Edit-a-thon, we also helped conduct a local diversity themed edit-a-thon in Satara, Maharashtra.
In July, an introductory Telugu Wikisource Workshop was held in Hyderabad in conjunction with NTR Trust. A Wikipedia orientation workshop was held for the students of V.P. Institute of Management Studies and Research, Sangli, Maharashtra who showed great interest in inculcating Wikipedia based assignments into their academic curriculum. In addition to facilitating the Punjabi Wikimedians' Wikimedia Strategy Meeting, CIS-A2K also hosted a template workshop for Kannada Wikimedians in Bengaluru.
