About the Celtic Knot edit

The Celtic Knot Wikimedia Languages Conference aims to bring people together to share their experiences of working on sharing information in minority and minoritised languages. Our aim is to help people learn how to direct the flow of information across language barriers and support their communities.

The Celtic Knot Wikimedia Languages Conference is a place where people working on growing and maintaining their communities (on Wikipedia, but also Wikisource or Wikidata) can meet, learn from each other, and support each other on topics like community growth, technical tools, or collaboration with partners.

Driven by the vision of Wikimedia UK, together with local partners and fellow Wikimedia chapters, the Celtic Knot conference carries the experience of five annual editions, including two online events. The conference usually spotlights a language or language family, and the participants can learn more about the cultural context as well as the state of the Wikimedia projects in these languages.
