Dear fellow WRENs -
Do we have previous cases of WiRs in civil society
organizations/non-governmental organizations or at least
institutionally hosted community archives?
I am co-developing a pilot experimental project in Croatia on Civil
Society archiving and Wikimedia and would love to hear your inputs in
the plans. I can imagine it is not as frequent as these organizations
have far less resources and visibility. I feel it is urgent with the
situation in Croatian Wikipedia even if it gets cleaned from most
toxic admins (again on Meta frontpage 14 November:RfC: Global ban for
Kubura), we need to counterbalance a decade of suppression.
Will try to get sociologist and pioneering peace activist Vesna
Jankovic (fast learning Wiki enthusiast) to become WiR in a very
prominent NGO in the region www.Documenta.hr
*(that uses MediaWiki
software internally!). We work a bit against the odds as there is no
local affiliate, so we can only apply for RapidGrants + she has no
Wikimedian reputation, but we submit it as a team of 4 people.
If you like it feel free to endorse
