OutcomeEdit

 
ISA inspired by Wiki Loves Africa project, presented by Anthere

At Wikimania, we didn't create something new, but we did have the opportunity to launch a project we have been working on for a while ... the ISA tool. At Wikimania we adapted the tool for the event and launched a campaign specifically around the photographs that were under the Wikimania 2019 category. You can see the results of the campaign here: Wikimania photos described on ISA

ConnectionsEdit

  • I reconnected with African Wikimedians and met new people who are interested in participating in African-based projects at the Africa Meetup;
  • I was asked to contribute to a documentary on 20 years of Wikipedia by independent filmmakers.
  • As always, it was a pleasure to reconnect with friends (and make new ones!!) from Wikimedia around the world!
