Decolonizing the wikiverse at Wikimania 2023

Wikimania Singapore is just around the corner, bringing together wikimedians and wikipedians from across the globe to discuss free and open knowledge, under the theme of “Diversity. Collaboration. Future.” Many members of our collective are packing their bags to the convening, ready to join the critical conversations and sense-making that emerge alongside our friends and allies in the movement. As we prepare to convene in Singapore, we invite you to browse through the sessions and interventions we’re co-holding and joining at Wikimania 2023.
