What is the Community Conference?

The conference is being run Wikimedia Australia to showcase some of the exciting work that has been happening recently across the country, and give our community the opportunity to contribute to the next stage of planning. We will discuss some of the ongoing collaborations and how are WikiClubs working. The most important aspect will be looking into Wikimedia Australia's future to discuss what directions the community would like go in, how we can better engage with each other, our region: ESEAP (the East, Southeast Asia, and Pacific), and the wider Wikimedia movement.

Our special guest speaker, Ingrid Cumming, is a Nyungar yorga who was part of the research team that developed Noongarpedia including the nys.wikipedia. Ingrid is now the Indigenous project co-ordinator for the City of Canning, Western Australia. From her experience in working with Wikimedia Australia she invited WMAU to collaborate with the City of Canning on a digital heritage project. She will share her insights on these projects and how to engage and share in a respectful way with Indigenous knowledge.

We encourage all members of the community to let us know your interests, suggestions and questions. Those who can attend the conference are invited to offer a lightning talk on a topic of interest.
