Hello fellow WiRs
I am doing a tiny online series on
Wikipedia@20 years (and Creative Commons)
for Multimedia Institute also 20+ (that started CC in Croatia)
and would love to have a 60-90sec video statements
(ideally in .mp4 as early as possible, before March 10th)
on how GLAMers/WiRs see the past 20 + coming 10 years.
Croatian Wikipedia had not much to celebrate for a decade
but as of yesterday another 3 right wing admins are voted out
and we will hopefully have an inviting and supportive atmosphere.
This program is set to inform and inspire folks to *(re)join.
Denny Vrandečić and Alek Tarkowski committed to the program.
Best Z. Blace
Hi fellow WRENs,
Join here on Wednesday: https://meet.google.com/asi-hpms-pxv
Wed March 24, 12pm – 1pm Eastern Time - New York
Note that we will be returning to Google Meet rather than Wikimedia Meet,
as the latter is currently not stable enough.
I would like to share this WREN-adjacent opportunity in New York City. Note
that the paid facilitators are meant to be part of the broader New
York City community or at least have strong connections with same. If it
doesn't apply to you, perhaps you could share this opportunity with those
you think might be a good fit in our region.

Subject: [Wikimedia NYC] Wikimedia NYC seeks facilitators for Community
Engagement Roundtables (paid)
During this time of social-distancing, Wikimedia NYC aims to create
opportunities for institutional partners and members of our community to
connect and learn from each other, as well as to develop best practices,
build community, foster new ideas, and plan projects for when the pandemic
is over. We therefore seek proposals from members of our community
interested in facilitating a program for learning, and supporting the
development of communities of practice across our metropolitan area’s
various cultural sectors. Each facilitator will convene a series of
roundtable discussions over four months around their proposed focus area,
report on the outcomes, and make community-building recommendations.
Proposals should be between 500 and 1,000 words and address:
* Your relationship with Wikimedia projects (e.g. Wikipedia) and/or
* A focus area for the roundtable. This may include an area of practice
(e.g. libraries, archives and museums), a Wikimedia project (e.g.
Wikidata), thematic area (e.g. science and ecology), an underrepresented
group (e.g. lgbtq+ editors), or a role within the Wikimedia movement (e.g.
* Relevance of the focus area to Wikimedia NYC and its community.
* Ways in which individual sessions will be structured, for example in the
form of an example session plan including community participation and
Suggested target audience/participants of roundtable discussions.
*Support and How to Apply*
Facilitators will receive a $1,000 honorarium in recognition of their work.
Wikimedia NYC will provide access to its web conferencing platforms and
outreach channels, and will be available to collaborate and provide
guidance as necessary.
Please send a resume and proposal to rajene(a)wikimedianyc.org by March 30th
with the subject line “Roundtable Proposal.” Proposals will be considered
in order of receipt, until filled. Full description available at
Wikimedia_NYC mailing list
Just sharing this opportunity with you, in case someone had not seen it yet.
Please, share it with the wider community if you can.

as probably some of you already know, there is a movement-wide consultation
about the Universal Code of Conduct going on, and now it's time for the
affiliates to join.
It would be really important for all of you to answer this survey, since we
are discussing about *how to apply and adapt* the UCoC to the different
expressions of our movement, in order to have a basic level of protection
that might extend to all of it.
If you have any questions, please reach out to me, I'm more than happy to
