As part of our partnership with the Centro Cultural Universitario Tlatelolco, Wikimedia Mexico performed its first joint activity with the Centro Cultural Universitario Tlatelolco staff: two talks about Wikipedia, Wikimedia and GLAM projects. The talks were attended by 20 people in two days of work to learn more about the operation, values and politics of the Wikimedia projects and the way in which we will work in the coming months.
This training's main objective was to introduce the staff to the reasons and objectives of the partnering between WMMX and CCUT, and learn more about new ways of partnership and work between cultural institutions and free knowledge initiatives. This also served the purpose of preparing the staff for the next edit-a-thon to be held in there on September 20th, dedicated to the 1985 Mexico City earthquake.
Wikimedia Mexico begins talks with El Colegio de México
El Colegio de México, A.C. (commonly known as Colmex, English: The College of Mexico) is a prestigious Mexican Institute of higher education, specializing in teaching and research in social sciences and humanities. Wikimedia Mexico began talks with Biblioteca "Daniel Cosío Villegas", one of the largest academic libraries in the country, in order to perform a GLAM initiative in this library in the upcoming months.
In the past years, the chapter conducted talks and workshops on Wikipedia edition to some college teachers as Dr. Gilberto Conde in the Asia/Africa Studies College.
