"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."
