WikiConference North America 2023 is the tenth annual gathering of wikimedists, institutions and professionals from across North America, including Canada, the United States, Mexico, and the Caribbean. Our theme for this year is “Recent Changes”, named after the bountiful wiki stream and also reflecting everything that’s happened since our last in-person conference in 2019.
The event will be held primarily at the Toronto Reference Library in Toronto, Ontario from 9 to 12 November 2023.
On Thursday 9 November, we have the Wiki Culture Crawl during the day, and the opening night cocktail reception starting at 6 p.m.
On Friday 10 November, a Wiki-Workshop day is organised where several events such as hackathon and workshops will be held alongside the main conference. The Wiki-Workshop is also a time for participants to plan their schedule for the main conference, explore the poster session, enjoy one of the many sightseeing tours or just mingle with other participants!
On Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 November, the main WikiConference will be held, including academic and informal presentations on Wikimedia outreach, workshops to enhance the skills of grassroots organizers, practical information on the Wikimedia movement in North America, and related topics such as free culture and digital rights. The programme will be announced shortly.
