Project scope

Non-financial requirements

Requests for non-financial assistance
We will require permission to use the logos of Wikipedia and similar projects for use on the SWAG, information brochures and media publicity materials used for this event. None of such materials are produced or distributed for a price or profit.
It is our earnest desire to take maximum advantage of this occasion by way of massive publicity and media exposure to the maximum possible extend, even at a global level, as it will greatly boost the morale and motivate many new contributors. We request WMF/WMIN to assist, endorse and augment such media outreach.
We also request WMIN to support us in our seeking grand requests and assistance from other sources (as projected above) in whichever way and extend possible by way of WMIN's goodwill and influence.
We are striving hard to produce or gather a moderately sufficient quantity of SWAG merchandize to the conference attendees and students using the limited resources available. It will be highly appreciated if WMIN can supplement this by sending additional quantities of stickers and similar materials,
We may want to publish one or more blog posts on our project on WMIN's blog. We will need help reaching out to the communications team at WMIN to coordinate this.

Team Competency
  • Malayalam Community have organised more than fifty outreach programmes within the state of Kerala, neighboring regions and also at locations abroad where target community members are densely populated: See the template
  • Project Lead Adv. T.K Sujith have organised more than a dozen events within past 3 years.
  • The conference and associated events are taking place in a city where the community has a strong base. There is also a handsome number of off-wiki volunteers who are wholeheartedly supporting the movement and now prepared to help the program management.
  • The community maintains very good reputation and relations with the governmental, academic, media and local administration agencies. This will ensure smooth transactions and facilitations for the successful completion of the program.
  • Many of the team members are professionally qualified, trained and experienced in conducting such events for both corporate and non-profit entities.
  • They also share a lot of lessons learnt from a similar large program (WikiSangamotsavam 2012) conducted last year at en:Kollam.
Success Stories

Impact

Fit to strategy

  • WikiSangamotsavam 2013 is Conceived with the ultimate objective of penetrating the movement into more masses. Our previous efforts have been slowly bringing visible changes in the perception of public about Wikimedia projects. Today, a considerable segment of the common public in Kerala are aware of the existence and altruistic cause of Wikipedia. However, like other parts of India and Global South, the massive influx of potential editing contributors to ml.wiki projects still needs to be increased to make it a reputable number. This program aspires to set another significant milestone on this long road map.
  • mlWS2013 includes a 'WikiVidyarthi Sangamam', a gathering of selectively invited School students who are already exposed to Wikipedia as early contributors or are in the process of the same currently. A minimum of 100 students will be participating in this. [Malayalam community had collaborated with such students and schools in previous years and has introduced several important public domain volumes into ml.Wikisources enriching both the contents of Wikisource as well as the computing skills of those students]. Plans for a student's conference this year is already well received and appreciated by many schools of the region. The infusion of Wikipedia concepts and collaborative advantages into the minds of these students will go a long way enhancing the content and readership of our projects on a statewide scale.
  • mlWikiSangamotsavam includes a meet for 'differently abled' users. Some successful leaders in this field, some of them themselves differently abled, will present, demonstrate and train their tools and methods in using Wikipedia without a helping assistant, to the a specially invited target group users.
  • One of the core session of WikiSangamotsavam is planned to be a seminar-cum-symposium on the symbiotic accomplishments and future possibilities between the stakeholders of Malayalam language and the Wikimedia projects. This is programmed to be participated and directed by eminent personalities from the academia, government, media and literary and creative intelligentsia. The expected outcomes are intense mutual assurance and a very lucrative future interaction and engagement. This is going to affect the prospects of GLAM, Wikipedia content, Wikisource input, Wikimedia Commons repositories and the user base of WM projects in a very positive way.
  • The location where the program is being conducted, Alappuzha, is well known as one of the Ramsar wetlands hot points. Currently, in Kerala and in India in general, a massive public awareness momentum is being built up, on the need of preserving special climatic regions and its effect on sustained environmental and biodiversity systems. Leveraging on the circumstances, we intend to add several feature events to this program such as a half-day Wetland study trip "Wiki Jala Yatra" (Wiki Wetland Exploration). A select number of active Indian Wikipedians (including delegates from 14 other Indic Wikimedia communities) together with eminent subject matter experts, scientists and teachers will participate in this expedition. The participants are expected to create and/or enrich articles on related topics in their own community wikipedia pages, imbibing lessons from this experience.
  • The program will also include a photowalk around the city and its vicinities prior to the core events. We intend to initiate a QR Code project within a few weeks after the conference, with the permission and co-operation of the state government departments (of tourism, forest, transport etc.) as a pilot model which has the prospects to be scaled up massively over the entire state of Kerala. Such a project will benefit both the interests of Wikipedia as well as the people and government of Kerala.
  • The conference will invite upto 30 delegates, specially selected and invited, from the other Wikipedia communities from India. We intend to make use of this opportunity to start new models of national collaboration where contributions within each community projects can be reused efficiently among the remaining ones. The long term focus areas for these models will be political geography, railways and surface transport, biological taxonomy, geodesic information, films and music. The models will heavily rely on the upcoming interfaces of Wikidata.

Benefits

Malayalam Wikimedia community and all of its projects will be benifiting from this event. In addition, most Indic Wikimedia communities by way of lessons learnt on collaborative exchange of content enriching and content management.


Please provide a brief statement about how the project is related to other work in the Wikimedia movement. 
Please see above under section "Fit to strategy". GLAM, Wikisources, WikiVoyage, Wikimedia Commons are some of the specific areas the program will effect positively.


If successful, will the project have the potential to be replicated successfully by other individuals, groups, or organizations?
Yes. At Malayalam Community, we always like to impart and share our experiences and lessons learnt to peer communities as well as any organizations and movements connected with open knowledge and educational missions. The delegates to the conference can benefit from some of the first hand experiences on the innovations and steps we undertake to keep ourselves as one of the most vibrant communities in India.
