The 4th edition of WikiArabia, the biggest regional meeting of Wikipedia, will take place in Marrakech from October 4th to 6th, under the theme “Wikimedia and the local communities”.
After three successful editions, WikiArabia returns this year with a rich program in order to promote cooperation between local actors, as well as the sharing of experiences and expertise and strategic discussions.
The conference will be attended by several Arab and international experts, who will discuss at different meetings and workshops new ideas, strategies and projects. It is a space for exchange and learning par excellence.
At this three-day event, participants from around the world will present their activities and experiences with Wikimedia projects at the local or regional level.
