Dear fellow wikimedians,
We are glad to invite you to join us in an international GLAMwiki event, organised by Amical Wikimedia and Barcelona’s Fundació Miró. This event, called “Joan Miró Global Challenge”, will take place next 10th May, and it will consist of a 10-hour Wikipedia editing party, where wikipedians from all around the world will be welcome to edit together to reach the goal of making 10 key articles about Joan Miró and his artworks available in at least 10 languages. More information about the whole project can be found inthis post at the Wikimedia Foundation blog.
We would appreciate it if you could spread the word and invite the members of your community to participate. Also, we are sounding out the possibility to organise some real-life events where people can meet and edit together, as we have contacted some newcomer editors that would have a better editing experience if they were accompanied by some experienced wikipedians. Do you think it’s feasible to provide this kind of support? Do you know someone who might be interested that we should contact directly?
The project is getting more exciting as time goes by and we would like to share it as much as we can. We thank you for your help in advance, and will be happy to help if any clarification is needed.
