Going on a walk with a camera to take photos for Wikimedia Commons can be fun, but it's not always easy to do. It can be difficult to know what to photograph, venues can have restrictive policies, and even personal safety can be a concern. This session will start with an overview of the issues and solutions that I've experienced on my photo walks (particularly in Brazil), before opening the floor for an open discussion of the issues others have faced, and suggestions for solutions.
At the end of the session, the following will have been achieved:
- Awareness of challenges that you might face when going on a photo walk
- Discussion of possible solutions to those challenges
- Mike Peel
- (If you want to co-present your experiences of photo walks, add your name here!)
This session will address the conference theme — Wikimedia, Free Knowledge and the Sustainable Development Goals — in the following manner:
It's not clear, but perhaps quality education, and maybe reducing inequalities (for countries with fewer photos available than others)
The program design prioritises submissions which are future-oriented and directly engage the audience. The format of this submission is a:
- Roundtable discussion forum
- Panel with audience Question & Answer session
The session will work best with these conditions:
Large classroom or small lecture hall, with projection capacity.
Circa 50 people. No prior knowledge/skills needed.
Most of this will be easy to record. Audience participation will be more complicated.
