Hello, Wikimedia Norge members and other contributors, here's our newsletter with some info on what's happening in the upcoming weeks and months.
Meet-up at Litteraturhuset, May 15th
The introduction this evening is Silvija Seres¸who will talk about how the fourth industrial revolution changes business models, markets, how we work, and how we are. The meetup is free and open to everyone! Welcome! More info in the Facebook event.
Wikimedia Norge is participating in the Tech Lab during Oslo Freedom Forum with a full-day editathon. Do you want to join us? Get in touch with email@example.com. Lunch and travel expenses can be reimbursed. This is the invitation from the Human Rights Foundation, which organizes the Oslo Freedom Forum: As a member of Norway's Wikipedia community, you are invited to spend May 28 with hundreds of human rights activists and technologists at the 2018 Oslo Freedom Forum. Wikimedia will have an area inside the venue at Sentralen in downtown Oslo to encourage participants to edit various human-rights related entries in Norwegian, English, and other languages. A key goal will be to get the dissidents, activists, journalists, and netizen and OFF attendees from more than 50 countries to get involved in editing their own country's important pages, such as country page, leader (or dictator), top activists, and any key human rights or corruption issues. Working together, we can expose the crimes of corrupt governments while also shining a light on those who are working to make the world a better place.
Bodil Biørn event at the National Archive, May 30th
200 photographies from Bodil Biørn's collection are kept at the National Archive. With support from the Arts Council, the National Archive is digitizing these photos, and Wikimedia Norge is transcribing them and making the content available in cooperation with Wikimedia Armenia. This afternoon we invite everyone to get more acquainted with Bodil Biørn and the National Archive's collections. More info in the Facebook event.
Conferences and festivals
The employees of Wikimedia Norge are participating in several conferences and festivals this summer to promote the Northern Sami Wikipedia. If you are going to any of them, we would love to get in touch! Reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For this meet-up, Anine Kierulf has been invited to talk about Wikipedia and the Constitution of Norway – about article 100. "Wikipedia is decidedly the largest and most used encyclopedia in Norway, while it also has many shortcomnigs. Article 100 of the Constitution says The authorities of the state shall create conditions that facilitate open
and enlightened public discourse, so is this a challenge for the authorities?" The event is free and open to everyone. You can register on-wiki or in the Facebook event.
All contributors to the various Wikimedia projects can apply for our wikigrants. The maximum amount is 8 000 NOK. The wikigrant must be used for activities that support one or more Wikimedia projects.
Researchers' Days, September 26th
During this year's Researchers' Days, we will discuss what can be done to make women's contributions to culture and the arts as publicly visible as men's contributions. We are inviting organizations and people who have worked on the subject to talk about why it is important to do something about this, to share the good methods and not least to inspire to action. See the Facebook event.

A #wikinobel event will be held at the Nobel Peace Center on this date. More information is coming on wikimedia.no.
