Project GoalsEdit

The goal of this rapid grant is to have a global intuitive website for the Blackening Wikipedia works in the wikimedia movement.

It will be a support for explaining our work in wikimedia to future new contributors in the movement, and also to new partner (generally cultural partners but not only) with whom we organize editathons.

The website will be in accordance with values of Wikimedia, using images under Creative Commons licence and open content. WordPress will be used for creating the website.

The online events work very well internationally for the Blackening Wikipedia projects during covid19 and we will maintain these long distance activities. One of the goals is to remain close to our community despite the geographical distance.

We think it is important that our project is available in a multilingual website, with a language accessible to the internet user and with sub domains that allow the user(private, institutions) to find all the necessary information in one place.

Project PlanEdit

What is your promotion plan?Edit

This website will be intuitive. It will be used as a first approach of what we do in the Wikimedia movement, without frightening new contributors for whom the the wiki pages are complicated to understand and often with too much content. We will centralize the information, talk about the current and future work of our projects and their progress.

The plan is to design website for the global Blackening Wikipedia projects on the wikimedia movement. Indeed, Blackening Wikipedia exists in:

Here is a draft of the sections we are thinking of: about us, issues, initiatives, blog, resources, media, join us.

In the future we can invite contributors of Blackening Wikipedia to create entries on the blog or news section. In the resources we plan to make available the videos of the webinars in Spanish and French of how to upload in Wikimedia Commons and how to start editing on Wikidata.

How will you let your community know about the promotion campaign?Edit

The website will be promoted in our calling/"business" card, in the roll-ups used at the face-to-face events, in facebook, in the e-mail campaigns, on the websites of cultural and institutional places that host our workshops and partners as Magasins des Horizons (see example here).

Do you have any experience in promoting Wikimedia projects either offline or online?Edit

Blackening Wikipedia in French, Spanish and Catalan has 2 years of experience promoting online and offline events. More than 15 articles or advertisements in the médias talking about the project.·e·s-en-caraibeédia-la-colonie-paris/200019512598218

What is your post-promotion plan?Edit

Mid-september 2020 we will start our third season of editathons based online, in Paris, in Geneva, in Colombia, in Spain and in Guyane. The idea is to have a website that follows us during these activities.
