The weekend will feature both academic and casual presentations on Wikimedia-related outreach activities, workshops to improve the skills of grassroots organizers, and discussions on the past, present, and future of the Wikimedia projects.  There will be tracks on community outreach, online activity, partnerships with institutions of knowledge, and technology.  This year's theme is inclusivity—community building and sharing knowledge in architecturally-beautiful venues meant to inspire thought and action.
