What is WikiStage?
WikiStage is about curiosity. It is a collaborative non-profit project of people around the world who think it is important to never stop learning and to stay curious.
Our vision is to create a free and global platform for learning and intelligent debate. Volunteers and event organisers around the world enrich the collaborative video library by recording experts in short 3, 6 or 9 minute WikiTalks on their WikiStage - and so can you.
