2019:Multimedia knowledge/Challenges when going on photo walks
|This is an Accepted submission for the Multimedia space at Wikimania 2019.|
Description[edit | edit source]
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.
Session outcomes[edit | edit source]
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

It's not clear, but perhaps quality education, and maybe reducing inequalities (for countries with fewer photos available than others)
Session type[edit | edit source]
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
Requirements[edit | edit source]
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.
