The Wikimedia Foundation have reviewed the current global public health landscape and we ask all grantees to postpone or cancel all public events and activities until the World Health Organization declares the COVID-19 pandemic over. See COVID-19 Notice for more information.
Meetups are important occasions when Wikimedians (users of Wikipedia and the sister projects) come together face-to-face generally in an informal basis. These have been going on for several years and in a wide range of places across the world. Where there have been a series of meetups at a locality, they have often developed their own culture. Check the page for previous meetups at any location you are interested in to get a better understanding of this.
Stay at home,
work and meet online.
Meetups can be arranged via Meta, the mailing lists, or meetup pages on the individual projects. If you have attended a meetup, you can add a little report here (and link to a longer one, if you're in the mood of writing much).
Also see the page for Wikimedia and MediaWiki related events
- presentations at conferences, fairs, arts events etc. This is usually a good occasion to meet other people from the Wikimedia crowd.
