Personalizing your Wikimania 2021 experience

Translate This Post

Wikimania is an event that travels the world. With each new year and location it brings with it a manifestation of the local culture and identity. From London to Cape Town, Taipei to Mexico City, Wikimania revels in sharing the excitement and individuality of every location with culture, food, design, and of course language. 

With the event being virtual this year the Core Organizing Team wanted to figure out a way to bring Wikimania into your space and community. We’ve created resources for you to use during the event. From virtual backgrounds, social media templates, and even designs to help create physical conference memorabilia.  Don’t miss out on celebrating with the whole movement this year. 

Virtual backgrounds

In Remo, the virtual event platform for Wikimania, you can add a virtual background to your video. We worked with Jasmina El Bouamraoui and Karabo Poppy Moletsane, the designers of the Wikipedia 20th birthday celebration, to create a few unique virtual backgrounds for Wikimania
