Hello Andrew

Thanks for asking and starting the conversation.

Ceslause has submitted today a WikiAfrica Hour video (https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/WikiAfrica_Hour), which will be pre-recorded end of July.
It will be a panel of (hopefully) 5 people. 1 will be one of those and 4 other people have agreed to join (Nicolas is one, I am not sure the others are on this list).

I wanted to do "more" (and had discussed briefly with Andrew about the topic in May). But it turns out that unfortunately, I will not be able to attend Wikimania this year. I can participate and join other sessions if anyone invite me, but ONLY if they are pre-recorded (in July).

Hi all,

There are two days left for submissions for Wikimania panels or sessions.

Has anyone submitted or is anyone planning on submitting sessions on their GLAM work, or might folks be interested in making a WREN panel to discuss the last year's worth of learnings, and also do some evangelism for WREN?

A very regrettable thing for this year's Wikimania is that the submissions are not public. That makes it impossible to figure out what other people are submitting or what they are thinking. So if you have any sessions you are proposing, do share them here. Or we can combine forces on a session.

Some thoughts:
1. From the Smithsonian side, we will likely submit one about the American Women's History Initiative and summing up our edit-a-thon and other activities - what we learned, what techniques have worked, and plans for the future.

2. GLAM tools and best practices - Incorporating SDC into the workflow, best tools for 2022? Might this be a session of interest for folks to collaborate on?

3. We've had a GLAM Culture Crawl day in the past, where we have training sessions and discussions oriented towards teaching GLAMs new to wiki contribution. Might this be an interesting thing to propose?

Any other ideas welcome.
