Board members wanted
Wikimedia Belgium is holding a general meeting this summer. Only effective members have the right to vote, but everyone is invited to attend. In principle, the general assembly will take place by videoconference. There is also a new board member election. We are looking for new candidates to strengthen our team. Board member Roles and responsibilities.
Since April we have been working together with the Erfgoedcel Pajottenland-Zennevallei to make an inventory of the region's heritage, to take photos and to write articles on Wikipedia. Read more on the project page.

Webinar "Writing for Wikipedia"
As part of these projects we have made an inventory of Wikidata and lists of possible pages are automatically collected through Listeria. We have recorded a video of the webinar that we presented on this occasion.
All physical activities of Wikimedia Belgium have been postponed until after 15 September, on the orders of the Wikimedia Foundation. Therefore, we will only hold activities via videoconferencing and webinars. Our fortnightly Wiki Club Brussels is still running as videoconferencing.
Cooperation with museums and libraries
Due to the corona measures, the projects with museums and libraries have been temporarily postponed. We will keep you informed when we get back to work. Instead of physical activities, it is now better to complement Wikipedia and related projects.
Wikimedia Belgium wants to support volunteers who contribute to the various Wikimedia projects. If you have an interesting project, or a question, please let us know.
Contact Wikimedia Belgium
In addition to a general email address and a phone number, we now also have a general contact address via Google Meet. Here you can contact us with all your questions about Wikipedia and Wikimedia. Just by clicking on a weblink you will get in touch with audio and video, as you wish. If you have technical questions, you may also be able to share your screen. You do not need a Google account to use this service.
