|Richard Nevell||UTC+1||English||I am part of the organising team for this year's conference and work for Wikimedia UK. I was at the first Celtic Knot Conference in 2017 and helped organise last year's edition in Cornwall. Though I am tragically monolingual, Wikimedia UK do some excellent work supporting language communities such as the Welsh Wicipedia. It's a crucial part of our programme and I'm looking forward to the Celtic Knot.
Talk to me about: Cultural heritage online and Wikipedia training.
