The Wikimedians in Residence Exchange Network (WREN) is an official Wikimedia affiliate dedicated to cultural, heritage, and scientific collaboration with partner institutions such as GLAM, NGO and government entities. This roundtable will share the experiences of various Wikimedians in Residence (WiR) in both professional and share best practices and tools they have used in their work with Wikipedia, Wikidata, Wikimedia Commons, and other projects. This will include a series of quick lightning talks and a panel discussion. Discussion with the wider Wikimedia community is encouraged, in order to share best practices related to new developments such as Structured Data on Commons and contribution at scale. Wikimedians from around the world will be represented, including those from North America, Europe, Africa, and Asia/Oceania, with more to be confirmed.
