Activities and lessons learnedEdit

ActivitiesEdit

During the first semester of 2015, we worked with two classes that participated in this project. The first one was "Introduction to Technology I" at the University of Chile (the main public higher education institution in the country) and the second course was "Interactive Communication" in the Alberto Hurtado University, which was its first time joining this project. A third course was included in the second semester, "Introduction to Technology II", held in University of Chile by the same teacher than "Introduction to Technology I". The three courses included a total of 97 students that created and improved 50 articles in Spanish Wikipedia.

Thanks to the agreement with the National Library of Chile, between February and November 2015, a “Wikipedian in Residence” attended once a week to the National Library of Chile, to help develop and create Wikipedia articles about or related to the institution. Also, as part of the residence, 214 images from public spaces and areas of restricted access of the library, 1 media file and 7 documents (composed of 2,081 pages) were uploaded to Wikimedia Commons. Some of these documents include an incunable version of the Siete Partidas (1494), one of the most fundamental works about law in the Hispanic world, and the invitation to the Santiago town meeting in 1810 that is considered the beginning of the Chilean War of Independence.

25 documents that were part of the records of the National Civil Registry were located; 24 were requested and finally 23 were provided through a formal channel. From the latter, we could only use 22, since one of them was a copy from a modern certificate. From these documents, 6 were already uploaded on 2014, and 4 of them during April 2015. By the end of February 2016, the 12 remaining documents were uploaded, and also, two more documents —not coming from the Civil Registry— were uploaded as well. One was the burial registry of Bernardo O'Higgins (1778–1842), founder of the country, which was located by a member of Wikimedia Chile in Peru, and the other one, the birth certificate of Fernando Márquez de la Plata (1740–1818), found by a member of Wikimedia Spain, thanks to a collaboration with that chapter.

The transcription and validation of the released speeches from the third stage of the "Speeches of Salvador Allende" project was finished on December 21, 2015. By the end of 2014, 19 speeches (around 375 pages) from the third stage were corrected and 10 speeches (and around 132 pages) were validated. By the end of July, the 25 speeches from the third stage were corrected —totaling 473 pages—, and all of them where validated by December 21, 2015. This was the most ambitious and massive portion of the project, finishing successfully.

 
Inauguration of the Wikimedia Chile Conference 2015

A three-day conference was organized by Wikimedia Chile, with a total of 173 attendants. The conference took place on March 26th to 28th and was held in the National Library of Chile. Numerous organizations, educators and people with interest in the Wikimedia projects participated in the conference, who were all introduced to the different features and projects of the movement. During the event, attendants were informed about the benefits, challenges and means to collaborate with free-content projects. Additionally, the achievements reached through GLAM, outreach and educational projects were presented. The main goal of the event was achieved, allowing us to reach a range of representatives from educational areas, as well as the general public.

A joint activity with Wikimedia Argentina was held in the city of Mendoza, setting a milestone for this type of collaborative event for Latin America, since there were physical participation of members of both chapters, in the same physical place, strengthening collaboration previously established in edit-a-thons held at distance, under the Iberocoop framework. Of the 21 participants, 7 were members of Wikimedia Chile who traveled from Santiago. A total of 12 articles were created and one improved in the activity.

  • Sport and other events Accreditation

A camera was purchased and designated for a Wikimedia Chile member that was in charge of the project. The person in charge of the photographic gear, as part of the agreement with the Photographic Academy of Chile, took a training session granted for free by the Academy. 9 matches of the Chilean Football Professional League were photographed (212 files, one of those a valued image in Commons), including a total of 11 different teams and 5 different venues in 3 different cities. Besides the football matches, the camera has been used in different activities of the chapter (for example, edit-a-thons, meetings and participation in Wikimania). A total of 503 files has been uploaded in total, including other activities and those uploaded after the end of this grant (see here).

  • Wiki Tour 2015

Wikimedia Chile organized the second edition of the photographic contest Wiki Tour, in alliance with the Photographic Academy of Chile. As a result of this alliance, some of the prizes were granted by the Academy and the process of selection of the winning photographs was realized by experts, with an additional prize given by public vote. A total of 495 photos were uploaded, illustrating different dishes of the Chilean cuisine, which was selected as the main topic of the contest. The public voting allowed Wikimedia Chile’s Facebook page to increase its visits and likes, resulting in a broader promotion of the activities organized by Wikimedia Chile, communicated by this web.

  • General outreach and other activities

Through the creation of a network between different organizations with common goals, several edit-a-thons and editing workshops were held. A total of 9 edit-a-thons were made with different organizations, including UN Women, Girls in Tech and the Spanish Cultural Center. Most of the edit-a-thons were organized in Santiago, with the exception of edit-a-thons organized in Concepción and Coyhaique for the celebration of the 15th anniversary of Wikipedia. The last one is, at the moment, the southernmost Wikipedia event around the globe.

Also, there was an important increase in the number of people registered and participating in the "Wiki Force Chile" Meetup group. This group has created the possibility to connect more people interested in the free culture movement and could potentially serve as a source for future Wikipedia editors and WMCL chapter members. The "Wiki Force Chile" Meetup group increased from 55 members in 2014 to more a 100 members on July 4, 2015. A total of 146 wikists were counted by February 28th, at the end of this grant.

Social media has helped us to share more information about Wikimedia Foundation projects, monthly initiatives, as well as Wikimedia Chile events. The number of followers within our social networks, according to our predictions for 2015, have been increasing consistently: at the end of the grant, the chapter had 1.592 followers on Facebook and 1.393 followers on Twitter.

  • Administrative tasks

The grant received allowed the chapter to improve their capacity and strengthen its infrastructure. A new web hosting was installed, allowing the chapter to have a healthy operation of its website, an improvement compared to the former hosting service. In addition, and since it now runs under a VPS service, a customized configuration allows the administrator and users to have all their needs covered. In addition, our virtual office used for tax purposes is now working properly, with services that allow the entire board to use a physical office once a month for board meetings and general coordination. The financial operations of our institution continues on the right path: monthly payments for the chapter bank account have been processed, allowing the Corporation activities to continue.

The representatives attended the general sessions, as well as other talks and specialized workshops, over an array of topics of interest to Wikimedia Chile. Also, during the first day of the conference they met with representatives of other chapters that form the Regional Cooperation initiative for Iberoamérica (Iberocoop).

Thursday 14, there was a pre-conference event, where various talks and workshops were held. Some of the most relevant topics covered was the design of the SMART proposal, analysis of Wikimetrics and an activity over survey design. During the afternoon, the activities continued with a workshop over reports and storytelling, as well as a section over Program Toolkits focused on Education.

During the first day of the conference a ‘round-robin’ activity was held, with a series of rotating micro-conversations between participants, and afterward in another segment, ideas and information were gathered over the value of local/public organizations in different areas. In the afternoon, some notable events were: A presentation over the processes, goals and achievements of different regional cooperation networks, where the case of Iberocoop was presented; sessions over managing the challenges in the administration of a Board of Directors; and a ‘Q & A’ session with the Funds Dissemination Committee (FDC), to better understand the function/structure of the Annual Plan Grants (APG).

The second day began with a session that covered how to achieve that ‘quality’ becomes a standard ‘habit’ throughout all of our organizations, and afterward: a meeting between the Wikimedia Foundation (WMF) Board of Directors, and the chapters and thematic organizations, which was held in a series of table rotations. In the afternoon, Lila Tetrikov, Executive Director of the Wikimedia Foundation, who delivered her vision of the Wikimedia movement, the Foundation, as well as the importance of local organizations and groups, followed by a reflection over this same talk.

The third day of the conference, several sessions of discussion were held over the definition and measurement of the concept of ‘impact,’ by way of Global Metrics in Wikimedia; in parallel a talk was held where Wikimedia U.K. shared the lessons learned over the financial management and how this experience could turn out to be relevant for the rest of the organizations. Next, a session analyzed the six most relevant questions that resulted from the Chapters Dialogue, where a space was generated to discuss possible answers and or steps to follow. Later on, the last two sessions of the conference took place: In the first, the present model of the Wikimedia Conference was discussed and how the program could be changed so it could be more useful to the movement in the future; last, the closing general session was held, where for the first time a connection or bridge was attempted between the Wikimedia Conference and Wikimania.

Lessons learnedEdit

What lessons were learned that may help others succeed in similar projects, or that may change the way you are doing this project?
  • Coordination with other affiliates for documents
For the «Birth and Death registries of Leadership Seats of Chile» project, the participation of a volunteer from Wikimedia Spain was fundamental, giving access to some certificates available in his country. Thanks to the Iberocoop initiative, collaborative activities have been possible between different volunteers and affiliates in the Spanish, Portuguese and Italian speaking world, but for the first time we were able to access documentary resources remotely. This seems to us as an important example of how to work as network, increasing the access for files, especially some that are very important for a community but are not geographically available to them. Now, those documents are available for the Chilean community without the need to visit or access a Spanish institution, and we expect to replicate the idea with other Latin American countries, where there is a lot of historical documents available in another place.
  • Take advantage of available tools in editing activities:
Product of the increase of editing activities, such as edit-a-thons and Wikipedia in the University projects, one of the most relevant subjects to support the incorporation of new volunteers was to take advantage of the capacities of both the VisualEditor and the Education Program extension. This facilitated both the organization of the courses' activities and the rapid incorporation of the participants into the editing process, devoting more time in workshops teaching about Wikimedia policies and rules than coding. Based on this, we managed to build a working methodology with teachers and teacher assistants that allowed us to simplify the process of induction for students, in the case of the Wikipedia in the University program.
What would you do differently if you planned a similar project?
  • Avoid overwhelming volunteers
In some cases, we had some problems with some projects that were very time consuming. The «Official Speeches of Salvador Allende» project required a lot of volunteer work for transcribing documents in Wikisource, especially after a record number of speeches were uploaded. Even though the chapter reached the expected goal for the project, it was done more slowly than originally imagined and it made very difficult for volunteers to participate in other similar projects (for example, the «Birth and Death registries» project). We think for following stages to release less pages at once, and letting the project rest, during fixed cycles -for example every two years-, to give space for the volunteers to regain energy and will.
  • Consider national and international activities when planning:
The idea of organizing four wikicontest seemed reasonable at first, betting on a distribution of them throughout the year. However, several activities happened on an international level, including other wikicontests such as La mujer que nunca conociste, that overlapped partly with our proposed events. At the same time, there were several other activities that needed the support of the board and volunteers of Wikimedia Chile, especially oriented to reach new users. In that situation, Wikimedia Chile decided to focus more on those offline activities, postponing its own wikicontests and supporting those contests that where made with other affiliates.

Outcomes and impactEdit

OutcomesEdit

Provide the original project goal here.
Wikimedia Chile will be able to organize: two projects to release material into Wikimedia Commons, and then transcribe it into Wikisource; the fourth implementation of Wikipedia in the University; a series of outreach activities such as: Wikipedia editing workshops, edit-a-thons and Wiki takes events, social meetups through our Wiki Force Chile group and the Wikimedia Chile Conference 2015, to have the chance to stimulate and encourage volunteers, create community cohesion and commitment, and in general create awareness about the Wikimedia movement in a welcoming environment; to work in collaboration with cultural institutions such as the National Library of Chile; seek for accreditation in at least two sport teams events; organize several wikicontest to take advantage of the material generated by photograph contest in the past and in the upcoming year, and also support the recruitment of newer contributors; and organize a photograph contest about the meals and drinks from Chile.

Progress towards targets and goalsEdit

Project metrics

Target outcome Achieved outcome Explanation
Wikipedia in the University
This would be the fourth version of this project organized by Wikimedia Chile. The plan is to organize a fourth version of this initiative during 2015 for a course of about 50 students, where each of them must create an article that does not exist in Spanish Wikipedia.
Engaging with a new cohort of students in a University we already executed the project.   Done: 3 courses in 2 universities During the first semester of 2015 we worked with two courses that participated in this project. The first one was "Introduction to Technology I", held in University of Chile by the same teacher that participated in previous versions of the project, who also joined Wikimedia Chile as a member. The second course was "Interactive Communication" in the Universidad Alberto Hurtado (first time joining this project). During the second semester, a third course was added, "Introduction to Technology II", held in University of Chile by the same teacher than "Introduction to Technology I".
Increase the amount of trained editors   Done: 97 trained editors, mostly new users 20 students in "Interactive Communication", 48 students in "Introduction to Technology I", 29 students in "Introduction to Technology II"
Increase the amount of new or improved articles   Done: 50 new and improved articles 21 articles created or improved in "Interactive Communication", 24 articles in "Introduction to Technology I" and 5 articles in "Introduction to Technology II".
Wikimedian in Residence in the National Library of Chile
The objective is to work in collaboration with the National Library of Chile improving articles in Wikipedia and uploading public domain material (books, images and maps) archived in the National Library and scanned by Memoria Chilena. We hope to upload and transcribe an average of 2 documents per month (a total of 10 documents), and improve about 20 articles commonly chosen, and create a manual in Spanish, as a guide for Wikimedians in Residence.
Selecting and uploading 10 documents to Wikimedia Commons.   Done*: 8 documents uploaded, one of those very big and valuable. 7 books and 1 invitation were included. Instead of uploading more books, the agreement reached with the Library favored the release of more valued documents, such as a 1491 version of Siete Partidas. Only this file has 946 pages, three to four times larger than an average big book.
Transcribing the documents in Wikisource.   Not done With the exception of the short invitation to the 1810 Santiago town meeting, no document was transcribed given their extension and complexity and the situation of exhaustion of the community after the Official Speeches of Salvador Allende project.
Improving or creating 20 related articles.   Partly done: 17 articles created, improved or illustrated (85% of the goal) Several articles were directly improved, such as «Biblioteca Nacional de Chile» or «incunable chileno». 15 articles were improved in Spanish, with 1 in Catalan and 1 in English also improved.
Birth and Death registries of Leadership Seats of Chile
The project's objective is to seek, obtain, record and digitally publish birth and death certificates of the Presidents and Governors of Chile and make them digitally available in order to preserve historical data through Wikimedia Commons, as well as complete historical information relevant to Chile.
Acquiring the Birth and Death Registries of Leadership Seats of Chile   Partly done:
  •   Done: 22 certificates by the Civil Registry
  •   Done: 1 certificate in other Chilean institution
  •   Done: 1 certificate in Spain
  •   Not done: 87 certificates in the Archbishopric of Santiago
  •   Not done: 3 certificates not available
25 documents that were part of the records of Civil Registry were requested; of those, 23 where located and provided. However, one of those was a modern certificate and not the original, so it was not suitable for the project. Two more documents —not coming from the Civil Registry— were uploaded as well: the burial registry of Bernardo O'Higgins, located by a member of Wikimedia Chile, and the other one, the birth certificate of Fernando Márquez de la Plata, found by a member of Wikimedia Spain. The documents available by the Archbishopric of Santiago, however, won't be available in the near future because of restrictions by the institution.
Uploading the certificates to Commons   Done Of the 24 available documents for uploading, 6 were uploaded before the start of this grant. The remaining documents were uploaded to Wikimedia Commons before February 2016.
Transcribing the certificates in Wikisource   Partly done Documents based mainly in text have been transcribed already in Wikisource. However, several certificates are complex tables that require a harder work for transcribing.
Official Speeches of Salvador Allende
The main objective is to upload and release in Wikimedia projects the official speeches of Salvador Allende (president of Chile between 1970 and 1973). The Salvador Allende Foundation (FSA) has 217 different documents with transcripts of some official presidential speeches that weren't destroyed by the military dictatorship. The speeches will be uploaded to Wikimedia Commons as DjVu files and then created in Wikisource, so they could be corrected and validated. For 2015 it was proposed to finish the 3rd Stage of the project, consisting of nearly 400 pages of material to be freely licensed during 2015.
Scanning and uploading the 3rd round of speeches   Done: 25 files uploaded into Wikimedia Commons, including 473 pages. The third stage of the project "Official Speeches of Salvador Allende" was the most ambitious stage of the project, it was composed of the same amount of speeches than the first and second stages combined, but had more 132 pages more than the first two stages, entering a total of 473 pages. All files were successfully scanned and uploaded wit the support of the FSA.
Transcribing speeches in Wikisource   Done: 25 speeches transcribed, corrected and validated. All 25 speeches were corrected and validated by December 21, 2015. Even though the goal was reached, the progress was slower than expected so a potential 4th stage of the progress was postponed indefinitely.
Wikimedia Chile Conference 2015
This project is a fusion of two activities that were not executed during our last grant and were postponed. The overall activity consists in organizing a conference with four blocks: The future of Wikipedia, Free knowledge, GLAM and Education. We would like to reach the widest amount and types of cultural and educational institutions and people that might be interested in the world, conceptions and ideas of the Wikimedia movement, and within this group find people that is willing to engage in Wikimedia, GLAM and/or Educational activities, and hopefully would like to establish long-term, strong relations.
Organizing the event itself.   Done A three-day conference was organized by Wikimedia Chile on March 26th to 28th and was held in the National Library of Chile, as part of the agreement signed with that institution.
Increasing the number of people participating from the conference: 135 attendants   Done: 28% more than expected The conference had a total of 173 attendants in the three days.
Creating a database of contacts: 135 contacts   Done
Increasing the number of participating institutions: 30 institutions.   Partly done Numerous organizations, educational groups and people with interest in the Wikimedia Foundation projects, attended the conference. They were all introduced to the different features and projects of the foundation.
Making agreements or implementing concrete projects: 1 to 3 GLAM institutions, and 3 to 7 teachers or universities.   Partly done Although we had contact with several institutions, we could only make agreements with 2 institutions: the Spanish Cultural Center and UN Women. Both institutions hosted edit-a-thons during the 2015-2016 period. It wasn't possible to increase the number given the difficulties to follow up discussions only with volunteers.
Trans-Andean Edit-a-thon
To organize with Wikimedia Argentina a bi-national editing event in Mendoza, Argentina. It is expected for 10 volunteers to attend to this event to take pictures and improve articles that cross the common history of Chile and Argentina.
Participating in the event itself: 10 attendants.   Partly done: 7 participants from Chile, a total of 21 participants. The edit-a-thon was held in the National University of Cuyo on October 3rd, 2015 in the Faculty of Arts and Design of the National University of Cuyo (UNCuyo). 21 participants joined the edit-a-thon, 7 coming from Santiago representing Wikimedia Chile.
Collaborating with an Editing Workshop: 10 attendants.   Not participating Due to a snow storm on the Andes, the border between both countries was closed on October 1st, so the Chilean delegation didn't participate in the editing workshop, which was made only by Wikimedia Argentina at UNCuyo.
Selecting and improving or creating 10 articles.   Done: 13 articles. 12 articles were created and 1 was improved.
Taking and uploading pictures to Wikimedia Commons 100 images.   Not done Due to the transportation problems explained before, the project was focused only in the edit-a-thon part, and it wasn't possible to work properly on digitalization or photography to illustrate articles. Only 2 files were uploaded related to the articles, while 40 photos were taken about the edit-a-thon itself.
Sport and other Events Accreditation
This project consists in purchasing a professional camera to be able to get accreditation for sports and other events. The main objective is to obtain accreditation for two, third division football teams as a starter; this decision was also based on the information presented by both chapters. The overall goal is to document two different third division Chilean football teams and their sporting events.
Sending formal letters: 32 third division football teams.   Done: Project changed In 2015, instead of contacting the teams, we used one press accreditation given by the Asociación Nacional de Fútbol Profesional (ANFP), the organizational body for professional competitions including the First and Second Professional Division. ANFP's accreditation allowed access to matches and press conferences.
Acquiring access to teams: 2 out of 32   Done: Project changed. Access to all matches of the 2015 league. Wikimedia Chile could go to 8 matches of the Chilean Football Professional League, including a total of 11 different teams and 5 different venues in 3 different cities.
Obtain images: 100 per club (players, trainers, offices, stadium and at least one match), for 200 in total (if #2 is accomplished).   Done: 212 files. Files available at this category in Wikimedia Commons.
Upload new pictures to Wikimedia Commons: 200 images   Done: All files uploaded. One file was considered a valued image in Wikimedia Commons, and another file was promoted as a quality image.
Wikicontests
We want to organize 4 different wikicontests, based on the images uploaded in different photographic contests (Wiki Loves Monuments, Wiki Tour, etc.). We believe this is an opportunity to take advantage of this material, and organize contest to create articles, incorporate images to Wikipedia, and other sister projects, and categorize images.
Organize 4 wikicontests   Not done: Project postponed to next grant. The idea of organizing four wikicontest seemed reasonable at first, betting on a distribution of them throughout the year. However, due to the many activities previously scheduled and especially the new ones that emerged during the year, like Wikipedia in the University and the contests developed by the Spanish Wikimedia Community and Iberocoop, like the “Monthly Challenges”, the time spent by the board and the volunteers of Wikimedia Chile focused in offline activities that allowed to reach new users, rather than focusing on the wikicontests, were often mostly experienced users participate.
Wiki Tour 2015 (Wikiepic of the Meals and Drinks of Chile Photo Contest)
Inspired by the success of Wiki Tour Chile 2014, the contest WikiCheese organized by Wikimedia France, and the poem by Pablo de Rokha "Epopeya de las Comidas y Bebidas de Chile", we decided to create a photograph contest called "Wikiepic of the Meals and Drinks of Chile". The idea is to obtain images of all kinds of food and drinks of Chile, upload them to commons, and then create or improve articles in Wikipedia and Wikivoyage. Therefore this project should be linked to a wikicontest.
Organizing the contest itself.   Done The contest was realized between September 15th and October 31st, 2015.
Attract participants to participate in the contest: 400 participants   Partly done: 187 contestants (46,8% of the goal). 187 participants (138 from Wikimedia Commons and 49 from Flickr), surpassing the participants of WLM Chile 2013 (154) but lower than the participants from Wiki Tour Chile 2014 (401) and WLM Chile 2012 (331).
Upload new pictures within the frame of the contest: 3,000 images   Partly done: 495 images (16,5% of the goal).
General outreach and other activities
During the organization of our projects and activities, were we tried a wide variety of activities related to outreach, we decided to focus on four aspects: organize at least 8 Wikipedia activities, usage of promotional materials, increase participation in "Wiki Force Chile" Meetup, facilitate the handling of our social media spaces.

Increase the amount of people participating in Wiki Force Chile: up to 100 participants.   Done: 146 participants. The Meetup group Wiki Force Chile reached 100 members on July 4th, 2015. A total of 146 wikists were counted by February 28th, at the end of this grant.
Increase the amount of people following us in our social media: up to 2,000 likes in Facebook and up to 1,500 followers in Twitter.   Partly done:
  •   Partly done: 39% of the expected increase in Facebook.
  •   Partly done: 79% of the expected increase in Twitter.
  • At the end of the grant, the Facebook account had 1,592 followers. Compared with a baseline of 1,333 followers, only a 38,8% of the increase to reach 2,000 followers was reached.
  • At the end of the grant, the Twitter account had 1,393 followers. Considering the baseline of 987 at the grant request, the chapter completed 79,1% of the expected increase for 1,500 followers (107 less).
Increase the amount of Wikimedia Chile members: up to 40 members.   Partly done: 53% of the expected increase. At the start of 2015, Wikimedia Chile had 27 members. 8 new members were included in the chapter, while one requested its removal, giving a final amount of 34 members, 6 members less than the goal expected.
Administrative tasks
The objective is to replenish office supplies, pay bank and transfer fees, help organize the General Assembly and board meetings, so the Chapter can normally function, fulfilling its bylaws and responsibilities, and also renew our site domains and acquire some fixed assets. All the prior will sustain and allow the execution of the projects and activities planned for this period.
Completion of administrative tasks   Done
  • Bank fees and virtual office are covered for the complete grant period.
  • Wikimedia Chile websites are running under a new web hosting, and the domains for wikimediachile.cl and wikilovesmonuments.cl are guaranteed for 2 more years.

Learning question
Did your work increase the motivation of contributors, and how do you know?
Yes. We developed activities to motivate both new and older contributors to participate in Wikimedia projects, and we reached it, with the involvement of 130 active and 173 new editors in our edit-a-tons, contests, workshops, social meetings and other activities.

ImpactEdit

This section ties this project to Wikimedia's broader goals, and shows what the project accomplished.

What impact did this project have on WMF's mission and the strategic goals? Please answer in 1 -2 paragraphs and include specific measures of impact such as the number of readers or editors reached by a particular project, or the number of articles edited or improved.
We made an impact on two of the main WMF strategic goals:
Over 500 persons contributed to Wikimedia projects in our activities as edit-a-thons, Wikipedia workshops and the Wikipedia Education Program. Wikimedia Chile was capable to increase the participation in Wikimedia projects and also the recruitment and acculturation of newer contributors. We recruited more than 170 new editors on a 14-month term (~12 new editors per month), a big increase compared to our March 2013-September 2014 term when we recruited 137 new editors (~7 new editors per month). We also promoted diversity in the Wikimedia community, with two main target groups. One of them were women, having as a main goal to reduce the gender gap in Wikipedia; we made two gender-themed edit-a-thons, having an important female participation, in which articles related to women and gender issues were created. The first one was organized with "Women who Code" and "Girls in Tech" groups, and the second one was organized along UN Women. The second target group were the Chileans who outside Santiago, the capital of Chile, as the start of our regionalization program; we had activities in Concepción and Coyhaique (the southernmost Wikimedia activity ever!) to celebrate Wikipedia's 15th anniversary. Wikimedia Chile also supported offline and social events, through our Meetup group "Wiki Force Chile", that has reached +180 members.
We have improved the quality of Chile's contents in Wikipedia through the edit-a-thons and the Wikipedia Education Program, with more than 300 articles created or improved. As said before, two of the edit-a-thons were dedicated to women, so we helped to reduce the Wikipedia content gender gap, with the creation of Wikipedia articles about Chilean women and gender. We also improved the quality of the Chile-related contents in Wikimedia Commons, with the photo contest Wiki Tour, dedicated this time to Chilean cuisine, a topic that had a bad quality of photos in general. 495 new images were added during the contest, improving also the illustration of Chilean cuisine articles in Wikipedia. Our Wikipedian in Residence program helped to improve quality about National Library of Chile in both projects -Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons, with 222 new images and 17 articles improved/created. We signed two institutional partnerships and alliances with the National Library of Chile (that donated the venue for the Wikimedia Chile Conference) and the photographic academy AF Chile (that helped us in the Wiki Tour contest). We also developed new institutional contacts, with the Spanish Cultural Center (we organized a simultaneous Spain-related edit-a-thon with Argentina, Uruguay and Bolivia) and UN Women.
