Budget change requestEdit
We would like to ask the authorization to use the expense line of "Wikimania travel" not only for Wikimania.
- 2 people (Michael Epaka and Iolanda Pensa) will attend Wikimania in London as planned (August 2014).
- 1 person (Didier Schaub of doual'art) will attend the Dakar Biennale of contemporary African art to present the video and the project and to discuss about it with African intellectuals and scholars (May 2014). At the end it was not possible for Didier to attend the Dakar Biennale.
This change is due to the opportunity of presenting our project in Africa during a major cultural gathering. We trust it is essential to discuss about Wikipedia (and what is about in Africa) with intellectuals and scholars living in the continent or focusing on Africa. Didier Schaub - artistic director of doual'art who will attend the event - is the most suitable person to present the project at the Dakar Biennale since he has been among the curators of it and he has an extended network. We trust this change will contribute to an efficient communication of the project outside the Wikimedia community and this better use of the funds sill guarantee a presence of our team at Wikimania.
- Hi all, I'm approving this request now - seems like a better use of funds to get the project in front of your target audience at the Dakar Biennale, rather than sending more team-members to Wikimania. I'm updating the line-item in your budget to 1 bucket for "travel" to provide the necessary flexibility for this. Cheers, Siko (WMF) (talk) 16:51, 29 April 2014 (UTC)
