Abstract (at least 300 words to describe your proposal)

IdeaLab is an incubator on meta-wiki for people to turn ideas into projects to improve Wikimedia projects, websites, and communities.

We’d like to host an evening mixer during the pre-conference days, to help IdeaLab Collaborators meet.

Attendees will:

  • create a fun IdeaLab badge to share their skills, interests, and ideas
  • connect with other participants over drinks and snacks
  • learn about interesting initiatives in a poster session with project leaders
  • make plans to attend a follow-up IdeaLab Workshop during Wikimania to work together on new ideas, project plans, and grant proposals.

Do you….

  • Have an idea for a project to improve Wikimedia?
  • Have skills you can share with someone else’s ideas/projects/grants?
  • Just generally feel curious about what IdeaLab is and how you can get involved?

Join us and let’s see how we can help each other turn ideas into action!
