In August 2015 Wikimedia Armenia organized a WikiCamp in Beirut, Lebanon for Western Armenian speaker community in the scope of "Western Armenian" project. Though WM AM have already organized 5 WikiCamps in Armenia, this was our first experience to organize a WikiCamp in another country. We want to share our experience how to organize a WikiCamp in another country, what problems, challenges we faced and how we solved them.

Expected outcomes
