2014 Activity Plan/Wikimania 2014
- Lead member of staff
- Indicative budget amount
- 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
We are perceived as the go-to organisation by UK GLAM, educational, and other organisations who need support or advice for the development of Open Knowledge:
- Sum of reputation ratings of organisations that we are working in partnership with, or were working with no more than than two years ago increased by 5%
We have a thriving community of WMUK volunteers:
- Subscriptions to the Friends of Wikimedia UK Newsletter reach 420
- We have 250 recorded volunteers
- Increases in numbers of leading volunteers, activity units and leading volunteer activity units
A thriving set of other Wikimedia communities:
- At least 7 jointly held activities or events with other chapters or groups including those that increase the diversity of contributors or upskill existing community members
Additionally, we are working to develop the 2014-15 activity plan in a way that it benefits from Wikimania.
- 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.
