We have asked the organizers whether there would be a possibility to bring Wikimedia Space to WikiArabia. They aren’t promising anything, but they have allowed us to submit a proposal:

Thank you! And if you are attending and you would like to see Wikimedia Space used in the Arab region, please support this proposal!

Just one day away! For any of you attending WikiArabia, I will be there giving a presentation and hosting a discussion about Space (linked above).

I’m really looking forward to connecting with you and hearing about the projects you’re working on. Feel free to come find me at any time (PM me here if you’d like to meet up but can’t find me!).

Will you open a live stream? so i could show it https://Wikicon.org - #wikicon19

Greetings from Wuppertal/Germany

As far as I know, nothing will be live streamed (not sure the internet would be able to support that). If I find out differently I’ll let the organizers know!
