Description and overall rationale

Wikimania 2014 will be held in August in London. WMUK has supported the bid and the implementation team. During the next eleven months we will be allocating staff time to supporting the team, especially in the areas of fundraising and communications. We will also be employing an administrator until February 2014 to assist the team.

The goal in this area is to support this independent community event as an opportunity to raise international awareness of our chapter and compliment our 2014-15 programme.

Timelines - i.e. what happens quarter by quarter
  • Q1&2 - planning the programme work of WMUK to tie in with the conference
  • Q3 - preparations and engagement with the event in August. Capturing the contacts from GLAM, Education etc, international chapters, and the visitors that engage with the chapter
  • Q4 - working to capture the legacy of the conference and building on the contacts established at Wikimania. Signing up members and starting initiatives with partner organisations
Success criteria and Metrics - overall and quarter by quarter breakdown if relevant
Risks
  • WMUK activity programme failing to capture the legacy of the event and benefit from it.
  • WMUK's day to day and usual programme work is severely disrupted because of being overwhelmed by the event.
