The free online encyclopedia Wikipedia, is the 6th most visited site on the internet. The content is created and edited by volunteers all over the world.
But it has long been acknowledged that the there is a lack of diversity among contributors. Less than 10% of editors identify as female and 85% are university educated.
The session will be led by experienced Wikipedian Kathryn Barwick and the Pride History Group. With their help, participants will focus on improving LGBTIQ articles on Wikipedia.
City historian Dr Lisa Murray will also be on hand to show you how to use the city archives and general referencing.
Everyone is welcome and no experience is necessary.
Bring your own laptop or tablet and connect to our free wi-fi, or use one of our devices (a limited number of devices will be available for use at the event).
Participants are required to set up their Wikipedia account prior to the day if they don’t already have one.
Bookings are recommended as places are limited.
