Wikipedia is a free online encyclopedia and 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 remedy the imbalance and bias in the diversity of voices on Wikipedia. The City of Sydney Library is joining this movement, hosting edit-a-thons to increase and improve content relevant to our diverse communities. 

Everyone is welcome to join our Picture This edit-a-thon workshop led by City Historians Dr Lisa Murray and Laila Ellmoos and supported by experienced Wikipedia editors Toby Hudson and Ann Reynolds. With their help, participants will focus on improving Sydney-specific Wikipedia articles with historic images sourced from the City Archives collection.

No experience is necessary to join the edit-a-thon. Bring your own laptop or tablet and connect to our free wi-fi or use one of our devices. (A limited number of library devices will be available for use at the event).

Participants are encouraged to set up a Wikipedia account prior to the workshop.
