NotesEdit

  • Sushma informed about three different schools in Gurugram who have shown a positive intent in undergoing a Wikipedia workshop. The Delhi community members have seconded the idea and also offered their support wherever needed.
  • A common consensus has floated for photo-documentation of the Delhi-NCR region. This comprises museums, historic places and monuments.
  • For photo-documentation, planning would take place segregating Delhi in three parts. Old City (Chandani Chowk area), Mehrauli city and Central Delhi.
  • Delhi community members have expressed their desire to learn Wikidata extensively. Sidheeq is a community member having expertise in it and can teach other community members. Vikram also expressed his desire to brush up his skills and then impart training to others.
  • Next meeting is proposed for July 14, 2019. Centre for Internet and Society would be requested to provide their office space.
  • Community members proceeded with a photo-walk at Charkha Museum.

Follow-upEdit

  • Created article about the Charkha Museum in hiwiki as well as on enwiki.
  • Uploaded photographs of the works shown in the museum (Commons link).
  • Created wikidata page on the museum (link).
