You're Invited To Wikimedia NYC Roosevelt Island Southpoint Park Picnic Sunday July 14 - The Picnic Anyone Can Edit, A People's Picnic For The People's Encyclopedia

According to Wikimedia NYC:

Wikimedia NYC invites you to attend the Wiknic, the "picnic anyone can edit" in Roosevelt Island (picnic site: Southpoint Park) for Sunday July 14, 2019, from about 2:00 - 7:00 pm, as part of the Great American Wiknic celebrations being held across the United States....

... This year the Wiknic will double as a Strategy Salon, using open space technology to address these two questions facing our social movement:
  • How might we build Wikimedia into an effective convenor of impactful partnerships, coalitions, and collective action based on a shared vision of open knowledge and the “Big Open” Movement?
  • How do we, as a global Wikimedia movement, avoid the pitfall of recentism, tapping in to elder networks, LGBT networks, women’s networks, indigenous communities, etc. to develop volunteers for the project as writers, developers, and document gatherers to find and preserve our hidden collective history?...
