This is a meeting/workshop for Wikimedians active in outreach to cultural institutions. Rather than an open community conference, this is a workshop targeting a small group of community-focused and technology-focused Wikimedians to discuss the key elements of the glamwiki.org project. Attendees can also include key representatives of GLAM (and related) institutions who already have a strong relationship with Wikimedia.
Saturday is focused on sharing best practise, so anyone linked with a GLAM organisation can present on the projects they have carried out. Sunday would be the GLAM WIKI 2013 conference planning day.
Further details regarding the proposed agenda (including making suggestions) can be found on the dedicated page for the event: http://uk.wikimedia.org/wiki/GLAMcamp_London/September_2012
Accommodation for the event needs to be booked separately - details on the page above. Reasonable travel and accommodation costs for UK residents will be considered by the UK chapter for participants with appropriate GLAM experience and involvement in GLAM related Wikimedia events.
* Anyone registering after 07/09/2012 will be required to book their own accommodation, as this is the last day to be added to the group hostel booking made by Wikimedia UK *
When & Where
Wikimedia UK is the Wikimedia chapter covering the United Kingdom. We exist to help collect, develop and distribute freely licensed knowledge (and other educational, cultural and historic material). We do this by bringing the Wikimedia community in the UK together, and by building links with UK-based cultural institutions, universities, charities and other bodies. We also represent UK-based Wikimedians to the Wikimedia Foundation and the global Wikimedia movement.
Wikimedia UK is a registered charity. We are supported entirely by voluntary donations (principally through the annual Wikimedia fundraiser). Please note that we are a separate organization from the Wikimedia Foundation, and have no control over Wikipedia.
