Background edit

The Celtic Knot Conference Accra local meetup 2022 aims to bring Wikimedians in Greater Accra together to learn, edit and share their experiences of working on minority and minoritized languages on Wikimedia technical projects. Our aim is to help them learn how to direct the flow of information across languages to eradicate/reduce language barriers and create visibility for local knowledge online.

This event will help new and existing Wikimedians in Accra, Ghana to meet, learn, translate and edit Mediawiki and technical projects on Translatewiki to Ga, Hausa, Mfatse, Ewe and also contribute to the development of the Ghana Pidgin English on Wikimedia Incubator.
