Wikimania is the annual conference celebrating all the free knowledge projects hosted by the Wikimedia Foundation – Wikimedia Commons, , , Wikibooks, Wikidata, Wikinews, Wikipedia, Wikiquote, Wikisource, Wikispecies, Wikiversity, Wikivoyage, Wiktionary – with days of conferences, discussions, meetups, training, and workshops. Hundreds of volunteers and Free Knowledge leaders from around the world gather to discuss issues, report on new projects and approaches, and exchange ideas.
This 18th edition will be a collaboration among volunteers, chapters and user groups of the Wikimedia East, Southeast Asia and the Pacific (ESEAP).
Wikimania 2023 will run from 16–19 August in Singapore.
There are 28 weeks, 8 hours, 17 minutes and 41 seconds until Wikimania 2023.
This year’s theme is Diversity. Collaboration. Future.
- Diversity. Wikimania will be an opportunity to showcase ESEAP as an example of inclusion: different volunteer groups, individuals, and affiliates, at different stages of development, different cultures but closely involved in an equitable way.
- Collaboration. As a distributed growth mechanism, Wikimania will be a way to learn and share new knowledge like tools usage, organizing events / online campaigns, solving a Wiki-related problem and many others.
- Future. Wikimania is also significant to many Wikimedians as Wikimania 2023 will also be a forum to discuss implementing the Wikimedia Movement Strategy (#Wikimedia2030) and discuss other future-thinking topics.
