Community Village

From Wikimania

Place of meeting, exchange and sharing, the Community Village will be held again during Wikimania 2018. All organizations linked to Wikimedia and open-knowledge-related organisations, who wish to share their work and exchange ideas, are invited to participate. Through interactive and innovative kiosks (as an example WikiCheese), the Village will be the opportunity to raise awareness of the Wikimedia movement and all of its projects.


The Community Village is located in the foyer outside Montreal & Mexico City and the second floor foyer.
