Wikimedistas de Colombia/Wikiencuentro 2016
Meetup of the Colombian Wikimedians and Wikipedia 15 in Colombia.


In 2016 Wikimedistas de Colombia wants to celebrate two meetings in order to know us better and improve our teamwork, internal organization and also to celebrate Wikipedia 15.



  • The last meeting of colombian wikimedians was in 2013, we think it's time to meet us again for coordinate efforts and improve our work.
  • We will talk about the realization of events such as WLM and WLE Colombia 2016, Wikivacaciones 2016, edit-a-thons and others.
  • Also we will talk about the possible participation of our group in events like Campus Party 2016.
  • Celebrate Wikipedia 15.
  • Encourage active editors to join the group.
  • Encourage editors to collaborate on the Wikimedia projects in indigenous languages.


Target readership[editar]

Mostly concentrated on Spanish Wikipedia and Commons; but also indirectly will may impact the general Wikimedia movement or more wiki projects (Mainly in Spanish).

Fit with strategy[editar]

This grant most directly supports the strategic priorities of increasing participation and increasing quality.

  • Increasing Participation
    • Wikimedistas de Colombia is a little user groups but we have been working over the past years to realize big events and competitions such as WLM 2012, 2013 and 2014, and Wikivacaciones. We want to encourage colombian wikimedians to work with us more actively.
    • With more members and a higher participation of them we may establish ourselves as a chapter in 2016.
