Many workshops about Wikidata were held in Rennes, France, in 2017:
- June 26: Wikidata
- July 25: How to query Wikidata with SPARQL (slides)
- September 2: Wikidata + OpenStreetMap
- December 12: First edits in Wikidata (slides)
All workshops took place at Les Champs Libres, within the scope of #RDV4C, a set of collaborative meetings organized by citizens of Rennes. These workshops were supported by many organizations, including Wikimédia France, Library of Rennes, Museum of Brittany, OpenStreetMap, and Breizh Data Club.
Wikimedians also presented Wikimedia projects on the occasion of the European Heritage Days, and started the task to import metadata about Museum of Brittany’s collections into Wikidata.
