General information

Wikimedia Australia, Inc.® is an approved chapter of the Wikimedia Foundation. We are currently accepting members and will soon be planning for our first Annual General Meeting and the election of our first committee.

The purpose of the organisation is to:

  • organise and participate in educational and social events that promote development of Free Cultural Works and related open source software systems, in particular wikis
  • increase public awareness, support and participation in the projects hosted by the Wikimedia Foundation (WMF)
  • develop resources to assist Australians in the creation and maintenance of Free Cultural Works

Wikimedia Australia is recognised by the Wikimedia Foundation as a 'official chapter' and as such will offer members an official voice in the global Wikimedia community, whose aim is to create unencumbered resources for use throughout the world.
