Wikipedia is a free online encyclopedia, it’s the 6th most visited website on the internet.

Wikipedia content is created and edited worldwide by volunteer contributors. It has long been acknowledged that there is a lack of diversity among contributors.

People are meeting up across the world to help grow the diversity of voices on platforms like Wikipedia and Wikidata. The City of Sydney Library has joined this movement in partnership with Wikimedia Australia to host edit-a-thons to increase and improve content relevant to our diverse communities.

We will show you how to develop articles on Australian music and musicians by adding information and references.

No experience needed. Just sign up for a Wikipedia account in advance and bring along your laptop and connect to the library’s free wi-fi!
