Announcing WikiArabia 2022 Conference in Dubai, UAE

The Wikimedians of UAE user group is excited to announce that the 6th edition of the WikiArabia conference will be held in Dubai, United Arab Emirates from the 28th – 30th October 2022.  This will be the first Wikimedia event of its kind held in the UAE and the Gulf region.

As a new addition to the Arabic Wikimedia community, the Wikimedians of UAE User Group believes in the importance of sharing opinions and experiences of those who have been active in various Arabic user groups in the region. This will lead to the strength and enrichment of the Arab Wikimedia community and provide Arabic speakers with a cohesive and unified voice within the international community.

Additionally, the WikiArabia 2022 conference will provide an important opportunity to work on policies that concern the Arab community as well as design strategies on increasing participation and creating sustainable communities of editors.

We look forward to meeting and connecting with the wider Wikimedia Arab community in person.
