Welcoming Words of Wiki Indaba 2023 in Agadir, Morocco.

Wiki Indaba is the regional conference for African Wikimedians both within the continent and in the diaspora. Topics of presentation and dialogue include Wikimedia projects such as Wikipedia, other wikis, open-source software, free knowledge, free content and how these projects affect the African continent.

COVID-19 impact

Before the COVID-19 pandemic, affiliate usergroups selected to host the conference would organise to host it in-person. However since the onset of COVID-19, the format has changed to hybrid where participants can attend both online and physical. Uganda was the recent affiliate country to host it solely online in 2021 which saw the numbers of participants double from when it hosted in person.
