WikiConference North America is the annual conference of Wikimedia enthusiasts and volunteers from throughout North America, including Canada, the United States, Mexico, and the Caribbean. Join Wikipedia, -media, -data, and -cite enthusiasts for a long weekend of collaboration and discovery! See the Schedule here.
The 2021 conference will take place virtually on October 8-10 and is free to attend. Our theme is Global & Local, Global y Local, mondiale & local.
Registration is closed but you can join the waitlist. The waitlist will be periodically reviewed and invites sent out.
You can buy WCNA 2021 and 2020 t-shirts or mugs in our online store by October 12.
We're pleased to provide translations between English and Spanish for our Blue and Red tracks!
When watching a presentation in either of those tracks, you will see an option on the right-hand column to change your language and receive an audio feed from a live interpreter. Attendees may also change Hopin's interface language by clicking their avatar at the top-right and selecting "Languages" in the dropdown.
