Hello Everyone,

Today, in Lagos, Nigeria, a community of volunteer editors would be coming
together to exchange resources, increase capacity and contribute to the
general sum of knowledge available on open source through identified
Wikimedia projects on topics that relate to African music and sounds - The
Afrosounds Project.

Our commitment is to continuously recruit, train and increase capacity of
volunteer editors towards bridging the knowledge gap as it concerns sharing
information and correcting bias and misinformation to the global audience
on content about sounds and music in Africa, covering topics, discussion
and content from traditional elements of music to modern and contemporary
concepts of sounds and its knowledge as it concerns Africa.

If this resonates with your interest and you would like to participate in
this meetup/training virtually, please join us via the call link provided
