Bristol will play host to an international gathering next week of the group behind the hugely successful Wikipedia online encyclopaedia.
The three-day Wikimedia Fundraising Summit will be held from Friday, and has attracted delegates from as far afield as California and Australia.
In only its second year, Wikimedia UK is hosting the event, which will allow those involved in the global foundation to discuss technical and strategic issues, including fundraising for the Wikipedia encyclopaedia.
It is the first time that Wikimedia UK, the chapter responsible for supporting the work and goals of the organisation’s projects in the UK, has hosted an event of this importance to the global movement.
Hewlett Packard is supporting the event by donating the costs of room hire, entertainment and lunches, while the Watershed will host some of the meetings.
