Property proposal for Queerlit ID / QLIT Edit

Hello! We have made a property proposal for an identifier that concerns at database for categorizing Swedish LGBTQI litterature. It is a project that started at University of Gothenburg and are connected to LIBRIS. It would be great to have some points of views at the proposal for Queerlit/QLIT or other suggestions for this work! Tore Danielsson (WMSE) (talk) 13:43, 31 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks for this property proposal. It will be great to see databases, especially those focusing on queer vocabulary from multiple languages, linked to Wikidata. John Samuel 19:00, 31 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Wikimedia Summit 2024 Edit

(Este mensaje se encuentra en español después del mensaje original / Cette message est en français dessous)

English: The Wikimedia Summit is an (almost) annual event organised for Affiliates and the Wikimedia Foundation to come together to discuss the future of the Wikimedia Movement.

The Wikimedia Summit 2024 in Berlin will focus on how the Movement is governed: how and at what level we make decisions about money, technology, strategy, and affiliates, and how that is written in the Movement Charter.

As an affiliate in good standing, the Wikimedia LGBT+ User Group is able to nominate a representative to attend in-person. I would like to be that representative and the Governance team have agreed to put me forward.

Nominations close on Tuesday 15 August and we would like to give people a little time to comment or ask questions. You can do that here, on the email list or on Telegram.

Español: La Cumbre Wikimedia es un evento (casi) anual organizado para que los Afiliados y la Fundación Wikimedia se reúnan para discutir el futuro del Movimiento Wikimedia.

La Cumbre de Wikimedia 2024 en Berlín se centrará en cómo se gobierna el Movimiento: cómo y a qué nivel tomamos decisiones sobre dinero, tecnología, estrategia y afiliados, y cómo está escrito en la Carta del Movimiento.

Como afiliado en orden, el Grupo de usuarios LGBT+ de Wikimedia puede nominar a un representante para que asista en persona. Me gustaría ser ese representante y el equipo de Gobernanza acordó presentarme.

Las nominaciones cierran el martes 15 de agosto y nos gustaría dar a todes un poco de tiempo para comentar o hacer preguntas. Se puede hacer acá, en email o en Telegram.

How? We will position all your interventions on a world map. It will be visually stimulating to see how projects dedicated to reducing the gender biases and gaps are conquering the Planet! We think it has not yet been done. Do you like the idea?

Concretely we are asking you to send a small punchy text resuming your activities and an illustration. We are counting on you and wish you all the best.

Introducing the Wikimedia photo library and a workshop invite Edit

Dear Wikimedia affiliates communications leads,

We are so excited to share a new resource with you: The Wikimedia Photo Library. In it you will find high quality images that help to tell the story of free knowledge. We hope that this library will help you in the important work you do as a communication lead. Alongside this library, we’ve also updated guidelines on how to effectively use imagery to tell brand stories.

Curious to learn more about these resources?

We will be holding a short workshop for 45 minutes on Tuesday 3 October 2023, at 16:00 UTC (add event to your calendar) and again on Thursday 5 October at 7:00 UTC (add event to your calendar) to accommodate different time zones. During these workshops, we will walk you through some examples of images that align with the Movement Brand Guidelines, some basics of quality photography and answer any questions you may have about this topic.

The need for a Wikimedia Photo Library

Our research showed that there are lots of photos available from Wikimedia events, usually featuring people using computers. There were very few images showing mobile editing or reading, and even fewer showing people using the projects in their everyday lives.

These images are the first steps in creating a photo library that is representative of the whole movement. We have added images that are aligned with the Movement Brand Guidelines in this category on Wikimedia Commons. Photography is a powerful tool to create cohesion in Wikimedia communication. Our hope is that all of you will help to build this resource out with images from your region.

By continuing to add to this category, we will be helping one another tell more impactful stories of the free knowledge movement – learn how on the Brand portal on Meta-wiki.

Thank you so much and please let me know if you have any questions. We hope to see you at one of the workshops!
