2022 Wikimedia Affiliate Spotlight – Partnerships

August 29, 2022

During Wikimania 2022, our team of regional leaders were recognized during the Wikimedians of the Year Ceremony. Below, please read the announcement from the Wikimedia Foundation and celebrate with us!

“Wikipedia and all other Wikimedia projects are made possible by hundreds of thousands of volunteers from around the world. Known as Wikimedians, we are united by a shared vision of a world in which knowledge is available to everyone, everywhere. Each year, Wikimedians who have made outstanding contributions to this cause are recognized through the Wikimedian of the Year awards!  This special recognition dates back to 2011. In a first-time partnership with the Wikimedia Affiliations Committee, this year’s Wikimedian of the Year celebration also spotlighted affiliates whose invaluable contributions to the movement help it grow in content and contributors.”

We’re so excited to celebrate with you that Art+Feminism has been recognized for the 2022 Wikimedia Affiliate Spotlight – Partnerships!

As our executive director, Kira Wisniewski, stated in the video, this award recognizes how important the role of community organizing is within the movement.

This award truly belongs to these ambassadors and network organizers of Art+Feminism: Alison Baitz, Anthony B Diaz, Paula Dominguez Font, Medhavi Gandhi, Richard Knipel, Amanda Meeks, Jessie Mi, Jaison Oliver, Athina Petsou, Sophie Reverdy, Sadik Shahadu, Sofia Stancioff, Dominique Eliane Yao, and Zita Ursula Zage. 

With recognition for the Art+Feminism Leadership team: Nina Yeboah, Melissa Tamani, Amber Berson, and Mohammed Sadat Abduali. And our board, Sarah Gonzales, Nana Osei-Kofi, and Kerrie Cotten Williams.

And to you! It our collective effort that so far in 2022, there have been Art+Feminism events in over 27 different languages. This award celebrates you, our Art+Feminism community. Congratulations to you and all the 2022 Wikimedian of the Year Award Winners!
