The Wikimedia UK staff team, who really hope you can make it!

Wikimedia UK is hosting an open day and workshops on Saturday 23 March and we’d love for you to come along.

The open day has been designed for volunteers, trustees, potential trustees and staff to get together over coffee and lunch to meet and discuss the future of our charity. This event will be especially useful for those responding to our call for applicants to join our Board of Trustees.

This is an excellent chance to come together as a community of people who all want to help the chapter achieve great things in support of free and open knowledge. In particular, it’s an opportunity for our community and potential trustees to meet and get a sense of the contributions they may be able to make to our charity and our movement.

Topics for the day will include a workshop looking at our five year plan and a session based on where we want to be in 2018. We want to know what your vision for our charity is, what you want us to achieve and how we can get there.

The event will take place at our offices in the Old Street area of London and will run from 10am-5pm. Lunch and refreshments will be provided and we will also consider meeting travel expenses for attendees.

We’re looking forward to seeing you there and making the most of this opportunity to learn from one another. If you’d like to come along please use this page to express your interest.

If you’re interested in becoming a Trustee of our charity, please call Jon Davies, Chief Executive on 020 7065 0990 or email jon.davies@wikimedia.org.uk  Jon will be happy to speak with you.
