Theme This year, the conference will be taking place in Cape Town, South Africa, where the organisers are giving this Wikimania a unique flavor — an explicit theme based in African philosophy:
“Bridging knowledge gaps, the ubuntu way forward.” Read more about this theme, why it was chosen, and what it means for the conference program at the Wikimedia blog:
Throughout the conference program, this theme will be tightly held, but loosely defined - in order to encourage a diverse range of responses to the theme. It is our hope that this theme will give us the opportunity to further our goal of creating the “sum of human knowledge”, by encouraging greater diversity and inclusion in who participates and what we discuss at Wikimania.
