"Wikimedia Australia, part of the global Wikimedia movement responsible for Wikipedia, is hosting the event, dubbed 'GLAM-WIKI: Finding the Common Ground.' Representatives from more than 170 museums, libraries, galleries, research institutions and other cultural organisations across Australia and New Zealand have registered to attend the event, which will feature keynote presentations by ACT Senator Kate Lundy and Wikimedia Foundation Chief Program Officer, Jennifer Riggs.

"In addition to being the first event of its kind, it will also be the first event to be hosted by the recently formed Wikimedia Australia organisation, which currently has 50-100 members. Vice-President Liam Wyatt hopes that this number will increase over the course of the event as attendees sign up."
