Re: [Wikimediaindia-l] Updates about Wikimedia Foundation Community brand and marketing coordinator visit to India

Rajeeb Dutta
I do agree with Krishna and Bodhi, if CIS-A2K can support representatives from communities to participate in-person and voice their opinion and an online session for the others.
Thanks,
Regards,
Rajeeb Dutta.

I completely understand that CIS-A2K is trying to accommodate their best to represent all the voices, but it would be even better to include the "major" communities and movement affiliates. I know it is too late to change Samir's plan, but it would be great if CIS-A2K can support representatives from certain communities to participate in-person and voice their opinion about the branding strategy. Physically participating can have much more impact than a remote call.

Re: [Wikimediaindia-l] Updates about Wikimedia Foundation Community brand and marketing coordinator visit to India

In reply to this post by Gopala Krishna A
Hello,
Thanks for your emails and comments.
Some notes:
Samir contacted CIS-A2K and CIS-A2K is directly co-ordinating the Bangalore
meet that is to be taken place on 21 April 2019. Samir also asked other
Wikimedians for suggestions.
For Delhi and Patiala event please contact Samir ([hidden email]
).
Event page link:
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Brand_Project_-_Community_review_in_India
CIS is also providing support for a venue in Delhi, and I am will help in
the venue in Delhi.
For Bangalore meet support contact me. ([hidden email])

Following the interesting discussion in the mailing list, we would like to
invite interested Wikimedians in India to attend the Bangalore event,
organised by CIS, on 21 April 2019. If you are an active Wikimedian from
India, and want to join the survey, please email to [hidden email]
 and [hidden email] (please send to both) and write in brief the
topics/a few questions related to rebranding and strategy you want to
discuss in the meet.

We are also in the process of arranging hangout calls for more community
input. We will give updates about the online call.
