Wikimedia Wikimeet 2021 attempts to provide an online platform for Wikimedians in India and Wikimedians who are working or interested in Indian content on Wikimedia projects.

Over the years, we have seen numerous important Wiki-events conducted by Wikimedians in India. A2K also conducted and supported many such offline conferences/training sessions such as Train the Trainer, Media Wiki Training, Advanced Wiki Training, and Wikidata and Wikisource events.

For the last one year, we have been gradually shifting our focus towards online training and workshops. Although the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting related restrictions are a reason for this shift in focus, this is not the only reason to conduct such an event. Through Wikimedia Wikimeet we would like to further explore learning/greeting/meeting in the online space.
