Wikimedia Czech Republic
Wikimedia Czech republic (abbreviation WMCZ) is an association, which focuses support and advertising free content and projects of Wikimedia Foundation (like Wikipedia) in the area of the Czech Republic.
Wikimedia projects are advertised via presentations on fairs, conferences, articles in newspapers and magazines, or via leaflet distribution. Project support is based on the offer of legal expertise in the area of the licenses and/or institutional and financial support for those, who would like to run projects. Such projects are Students Write Wikipedia (in Czech Studenti píší Wikipedii), GLAM, Pictures of Czech Municipalities (Foto českých obcí) or Protected Areas Project (projekt Chráněná území).
Projects running under patronage of Wikimedia Czech Republic are operated by its members voluntarily. As WMCZ's members are not paid, projects might be happen, just if there is someone, who is interested in them and able to run them. The association offers organization help for such activity. Thus it is a benefit to be a member of Wikimedia Czech Republic.
Despite of the voluntary basis of the projects, Wikimedia Czech Republic have implemented tens successful projects and other about 10 are active now.
The association is a voluntary non-professional (i.e. non paid) institution. Thus we will welcome your help even with "projects" which are about running the association itself like fundraising or public relations. If you would like to help us, contact the board (WMCZ's executive body) of Wikimedia Czech Republic via wm-czwikimedia.org or choose your way of help at idea exchange (cs).
