Wikimedia NYC and Brown bring you a Wikipedia Day celebration!

Wikipedia Day! January 14, 2024.

Here’s the program for the day.

Drop in virtually for events in the Lecture Hall and the World Room.

On January 14, 2024, join Wikimedia New York City for a celebration of Wikipedia Day — this year marking the online encyclopedia’s 23rd anniversary. Co-hosted by Columbia Journalism School’s Brown Institute for Media Innovation, the day-long event will focus on artificial intelligence, journalism and the future of the Wikimedia movement.

We are planning a variety of programming for audiences of all levels — two tracks with panels, speakers and discussions; a hands-on Playpen; and a one-of-a-kind Wikipedia-themed birthday cake. This event will provide a comprehensive exploration of the intersection of Wikipedia, journalism and AI, delving into positive and negative aspects of this evolving relationship.

Everyone is invited, and no Wikipedia experience is required — seasoned Wikipedians will be on hand to guide folks new to editing the site. We will serve networking coffee, an educational breakfast, a learning lunch and, of course, a special WikiCake.
