Dear design-interested Wikimedian! Join us for the design meetup scheduled on the 21st July at 19:00 on the 32nd floor.

Design happens, whether a designer is present or not.

It would be great to talk about how design is handled in your community, and how we can support each other to build a sustainable infrastructure to enable meaningful design contributions. The software development structures have been around for a long time and work fairly well, but there is no such thing for design and other non-code contributions.

In this meetup I would like to explore the design needs of the communities and work towards creating a space for mutual learning as well as a shared understanding of it. Especially because everyone has their own expertise it would be beneficial for anyone, designers, editors, developers... to learn from each other in a sustainable way by documenting workflows, methodologies, sharing tools etc. This all ties in with participatory design and it would be great to share what kinds of methods you have tried in your communities and generally exchange on our experiences and ideas.

This meetup is also for anyone who is interested in design to talk to fellow-minded people, exchange on resources, ask questions etc.

Proposed agenda

  • Exchange about the needs and problems regarding design contributions
  • Open exchange about design-related issues
  • Exchange on participatory design methods
  • feel free to add your own points...
