Short description[edit | edit source]

Free knowledge does not only use text as a medium but is increasingly shared in the form of graphics, photography, video and sound to name just a few. Especially minor languages profit a lot from non-written material, which helps to strengthen inclusivity and diversity and Wikimania should include a space to host multimedia content creators and curators. Possible topics for talks, workshops and meetings are photography and photo editing, use of video in Wiki projects, curation of media with structured data, oral knowledge collection and many more.

Relationship to the Sustainable Development Goals[edit | edit source]

The space topic corresponds especially to Goal 4: Quality Education as multimedia enables better education independent of specific languages. The space leaders are furthermore strongly committed to a policy that promotes Sustainable Development Goals 4, 10 and 12 and welcome any sessions, that connect the space topic with any other Sustainable Development Goals.
