  Wikidata turns six!
Wikidata went live on 29 October 2012. In 2018, we organize a giant Wikidata birthday all around the world. All local communities are encouraged to organize their own events: meetups, workshops, trainings for newcomers, hackathons, conferences... In October 2018, bring your local community, engage newcomers and celebrate the sixth birthday!
  Events to come
If you plan to organize an event for the Wikidata Birthday in 2018, feel free to add it here! You can start a subpage (for example Wikidata:Sixth Birthday/North Pole) to coordinate with your local community and add details about your event.

  Ideas of events
The main goal of the event is to share with your local community your enthusiasm about Wikidata. It doesn't have to be a big event, it can be just a meetup with your community.

Examples of events:

  • Meetup in your town with your local community
  • An introduction to Wikidata for beginners
  • Hackathon to reuse data from Wikidata
  • Translathon to improve the labels of Wikidata in your language
  • Kick-off a Wikidata section in your user group
  • Give an introduction to Wikidata to a local partner (university, library...)
