Wikimedia Community Ireland Newsletter – May 2019

Celtic Knot

The Celtic Knot conference is back again for 2019 and this year in in Penryn, Cornwall on 4th and 5th July. The Celtic Knot Wikimedia Language Conference aims to bring people together to share their experiences of working on sharing information in minority languages. The hope is to help people learn how to encourage the flow of information across language barriers and support associated communities.

Wiki Loves Monuments

Wiki Loves Monuments will be returning again this September, and we are excited to build on the continuing interest in the competition. You can find the map here, showing all the eligible sites and buildings, and given the good weather lately, why not get out there early and start snapping in preparation for the competition? Is there a site that you’ve noticed is missing from the map? Get in touch, as we are always looking to make the list of eligible sites are wide and inclusive as possible!

Editing events in TOG Hackerspace

We continue our monthly editing events in TOG Hackerspace on Wednesday 29 May from 7-9pm. Whether you are new to Wikipedia or an old hand at editing, come along for a chat with fellow Wikimedians. All you need is a laptop – WiFi and pizza will be provided!

To get a reminder about this and other upcoming event sign up on the TOG Meetup page, or follow us on Facebook or Twitter.

Getting Involved!

Is there an event you think Wikimedia Community Ireland should get involved in, or should look at organising? Do you have idea for an event or campaign you’d like to work on with us? Would you like to join us as part of organising committee? Or have any other good ideas, then get in touch, we’d love to hear from you!
