Wikimedia Community Ireland Newsletter – June 2019
The Celtic Knot conference is back again for 2019 on 4th and 5th July, and this year is in Penryn, Cornwall. The conference programme has now been announced! The Celtic Knot Wikimedia Language Conference aims to bring people together to share their experiences of working on sharing information in minority languages.
PhotoIreland Festival Editathon
This year we are delighted to partner with the PhotoIreland Foundation to host a Wikipedia Editathon as part of the 2019 PhotoIreland Festival. The event will take place on Tuesday 16th July from 1-3pm at the Museum of Contemporary Photography of Ireland, The Printworks, Dublin Castle. Find all the details here.
Wiki Loves Pride
June sees many Pride celebrations across the country, including various Pride parades. Why not help document these events for the whole world by uploading your images to Wikimedia Commons? You can see some of last year’s Dublin Pride and Trans Pride parade images for some inspiration.
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 26 June 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.
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!
