You are invited to attend Wikipedia Day 2018 on Sunday, January 14th at the Ace Hotel in midtown Manhattan!
Part of Wikipedia’s global 17th birthday celebration, Wikipedia Day will include a mini-conference of scheduled panels as well as unconference style talks and discussions proposed by attendees on the day of the event. We are very excited to announce speakers such as Jason Scott (Internet Archive), Jackie Koerner (Visiting Scholar, Wiki Ed), and Andrew Lih (Wikimedia DC), as well as a fantastic line-up of panels that highlight projects and issues of relevance to the Wikimedia NYC community.
This event is free of cost and open to all. We encourage you to invite anyone who might be interested in discussing Wikipedia and Wikimedia projects, but all attendees must agree to follow our friendly space policies: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Friendly_space_policies
