Leaflet For Wikiproject Caribbean At Wikimania 2014
My name is Adi Khajuria and I am helping out with Wikimania 2014 in London.
One of our initiatives is to create leaflets to increase the discoverability of various wikimedia projects, and showcase the breadth of activity within wikimedia. Any kind of project can have a physical paper leaflet designed - for free - as a tool to help recruit new contributors. These leaflets will be printed at Wikimania 2014, and the designs can be re-used in the future at other events and locations.
This is particularly aimed at highlighting less discoverable but successful projects, e.g:
• Active Wikiprojects: Wikiproject Medicine, WikiProject Video Games, Wikiproject Film
• Tech projects/Tools, which may be looking for either users or developers.
• Less known major projects: Wikinews, Wikidata, Wikivoyage, etc.
• Wiki Loves Parliaments, Wiki Loves Monuments, Wiki Loves ____
• Wikimedia thematic organisations, Wikiwomen’s Collaborative, The Signpost
In 1803, ships carrying Haitian refugees trying to escape the turmoil of the Revolution arrived on the Cuban shores. Though all the passengers onboard had been legally free in Haiti for years, upon their arrival they were considered slaves. The white people on the ship were allowed passage into Cuba, but those that were black or mulato were not – being held, at José Martí’s suggestion, on the ship in the harbor as a type of floating prison.
