WikiConference North America 2022

11 November @ 12:00 12 November @ 20:00 UTC

WikiConference North America (WCNA) is the annual conference of Wikimedia enthusiasts and volunteers from throughout the continent, providing a meaningful setting for Wikimedia-related discussions and activities. Since 2014 these conferences have welcomed non-Wikipedians, such as academics, students, and activists, to engage with the Wikimedia movement through conference programming, collaborative events, cultural initiatives, discussions, and more. The conference nurtures grassroots Wikimedia communities, addresses long-standing online and local community issues, spurs the creation of new content, and facilitates partnerships with cultural and educational institutions.

This year, we have agreed with OpenStreetMap to combine forces to make a joint event with their usual fall Mapping USA conference. This is new. Organizers on both sides see topics of mutual interest and an interest in cross-training across the platforms. We will have speakers or a session addressing misinformation, and the Credibility Coalition has agreed to provide support.
