Dear WikimediaUK, Cultural Partnerships & Foundation-l mailing lists,

On behalf of Wikimedia UK I am pleased to formally announce the second edition of the GLAM-WIKI conference - this time to be held in London at the British Museum on the 26th and 27th of November. The purpose of this conference is to bring the UK and European GLAM sector [gallery, library, archive & museum] into direct conversation with the Wikimedia community so we can build a better understanding of our common purpose - sharing culture - and how to assist each to best do that. After all, we are here for the same reason, for the same people, in the same medium so we might as well do it together :-)

As the British Museum will be generously hosting this event, and today marks the anniversary of the deciphering of the Rosetta Stone (hence today's Feature Article on the English Wikipedia), we thought it would be an auspicious time to declare that registration is now open. The registration price for Wikimedians is £20.

You can read all the details at:
and the WM-UK blogpost just published:

Wikimedia France will be hosting edition three of GLAM-WIKI one week later in December at the Assemblée nationale in Paris, and Wikimedia Australia hosted edition one last year at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra, so we're in good company.

Keynote speakers at this conference will be:
And many other presenters besides! Some are already listed on the conference page and many more will be announced by @wikimediaUK

Wikimedians from the UK and further afield are invited to register for this conference. If you are in contact with professionals in the GLAM sector, please mention this event to them too. Moreover, if you would like to come and moderate a session please write to me directly with your proposed session.

If you have any questions you can write to me privately, leave them on the event's talkpage or reply on the mailing list.
