Work with us
Wikimedia Norge is always looking for partners for exciting projects related to free knowledge, Wikipedia and the other Wikimedia projects. We are particularly interested in collaborations that deal with increased diversity among the contributors to the Wikimedia projects or lead to more diversity in the content of the Wikimedia projects. You can read more about our diversity work here.
If you or your institution / organization has an idea or project proposal you want to collaborate with us on, you are most welcome to contact us.
Wikimedia Norge works with archives, museums and libraries, state directorates and councils, colleges, universities and various organizations. We have extensive projects that span over several years, in addition to collaborations on individual events. If you have an idea, we would love to hear from you!
Some of the ways we’re happy to collaborate with you could be to:
- increase the diversity among the contributors to the Wikimedia projects and in the content of the Wikimedia project
- assist with advice and knowledge on how to share collections (photo, text, data) under free license
- give training on how to edit on Wikipedia and arrange writing workshops
- implement measures to enable collections, such as cultural heritage collections, to be used by the various Wikimedia projects
- organize writing and photo competitions
- spread awareness about the Wikimedia projects and the importance of free access to knowledge
Each year, we organize events together with various partners such as these:
- Art + Feminism
- Wiki Loves Monuments
- participation in the Research Days, the Research Council of Norway
Wikimedia Norge work with volunteers on our projects. As a volunteer you can help us with lots of things! Training in Wikipedia editing, helping with contests and wiki events, or helping with various support schemes, such as the wiki grant we distribute twice a year. Do you have expertise that you think is useful and would like to share it with us, feel free to contact us! Or get in touch if you have an idea you think we can help you kick start!
