Registration is now open for the GLAM Wiki Summit Toronto 2019 – happening May 23rd in Toronto at Ryerson University:

Galleries, Libraries, Archives, and Museums (GLAM) professionals, Wikipedians, and community members are invited to a one-day summit focused on the ways Wikimedia projects such as Wikipedia, Wikidata, and the Wikimedia Commons can increase the impact of collections and provide opportunities for community engagement.

Participants will hear examples and find inspiration of the ways the Wikimedia projects are actively being used and the different pathways this participation can take. A keynote talk will be delivered by Effie Kapsalis, Smithsonian Institute. Other speakers will include Benoit Rochon, Wikimedia Canada; Dawn Bazely, York University, Amy Furness, the Art Gallery of Ontario, and John Dupuis, York University.

There will also be opportunities for discussion and workshopping on Wikimedia project strategies for GLAM institutions.

The Summit will be held at Ryerson University in Toronto, Ontario, LIB405 (4th floor), Ryerson University Library & Archives, 350 Victoria Street.
