After much review it has been decided that Wikimedia UK’s Annual General Meeting and our WikiConference will take place at Lincoln College Deans Sport and Leisure Centre in Lincoln on Saturday 8 June 2013.
WikiConference UK is Wikimedia UK’s annual conference for volunteers and members. It incorporates talks of interest to the community and the Annual General Meeting of the charity. In 2013 it is being organised by the conference committee, a volunteer committee tasked with working on both WikiConference UK and the Wikimania 2014 bid.
This year we want to build on the success of last year’s conference, to provide a fun and interesting event for UK Wikimedians. The current, draft, programme includes:
- A one day conference, including the AGM
- Potentially a second day of activities such as a photography contest, editathon, tours etc
- Building links with cultural institutions & similar entities
- A social event on the Saturday evening for Wikimedians to get to know each other and learn about each other’s projects.
As a host city, Lincoln has plenty to offer, such as its historic cathedral and castle. It also has good transport links, with around half of our members being within two hours’ travel time.
The event is free to attend. A registration page will be created soon but in the meantime if you’d like to express your interest in attending please email Daria Cybulska, Events Organiser, at daria.cybulska-at-wikimedia.org.uk
We’re looking forward to seeing you in Lincoln!
