Wikimania: The Festival Edition!
Wikimania is the Wikimedia movement’s annual conference celebrating all the free and open knowledge projects made possible by the volunteer community. From August 11-14, Wikimania 2022 brought Wikimedians together to create, celebrate and connect, virtually and with in-person components. It consisted of four days of gathering, discussions, meetups, training, and workshops to discuss issues, report on new projects and approaches, and exchange ideas.
The theme for the 2022 virtual Wikimania was “The Festival Edition”— spotlighting projects and movement groups and celebrate the diversity of our vast community. Wikimania: The Festival Edition! can be summed up as: fun, alive, and vibrant; regional, shining a light on communities across the movement through the festivities; and welcoming of newcomers, creating a safe space for first-time attendees that illuminates and inspires.
