Wikipedia Day 2011 Celebration[edit]

Wikipedia celebrates its tenth anniversary globally on the 15th of January 2011. Wikimedia will celebrate this milestone with volunteers, donors, and other supporters on six continents. From the launch of a new outreach project in Kenya to a film screening in Tel Aviv, there are currently 200+ events planned worldwide. Our celebration events are open to participation by anyone who wants to join in reflecting on our collective accomplishments and goals for the future.

Wikipedians and well wishers in India are celebrating the tenth anniversary in a big way, with celebrations being planned 60+ cities across India. Mumbai is one of the active hubs for Wikipedians in India.

As part of the celebrations, we are organising an one day meetup in Mumbai on Saturday the 15th of Jan, 2011. We expect it to be attended by about 400+ Wikipedia enthusiasts along with Barry Newstead, Chief Global Development Officer, Wikimedia Foundation . We intend to connect Wikipedians with the general public and other focus groups in the city. There would be sessions to introduce Wikimedia projects to the public with a view to spur both consumption and creation of knowledge on various Wikimedia projects. There would also be updates from various Wikimedia projects as well as joint project planning sessions with various city focus groups. We expect active Wikipedians, academia and any one interested in Wikipedia to participate in the event. In addition, we believe there will be much interest from the Free and Open Source communities and other professionals.

Intended Audience[edit]

The event is intended for the following:

  • General public - anyone interested or curious about Wikipedia or Wikimedia.
  • Wikipedia users - current users of Wikipedia or any Wikimedia projects.
  • Wikipedians - Contributors to Wikipedia content in all languages. (This is not a English Wikipedia event alone)
  • Indian Language specialists and those working on Computing in Indian languages.

This is a free event and open to all.

If you are interested in coming, add your name below participants.
