Members Event 29th November 2015: Wikipedia Edit-a-thon

2015-11-29 WRC members only event fb cover

Wikipedia is one of the first places we turn to for research and information, yet the knowledge that we find on there is created by a very small slice of our society. Do you want to see more feminist or grassroots content on Wikipedia?

Come along to our second members event of the year! Learn the art of editing Wikipedia and put your new found knowledge into practise. Let’s improve and increase the coverage of awesome grassroots and/or feminist organisations and projects on Wikipedia!

We’ll also be looking for volunteers to make up a page for Wellington Rape Crisis (according to Wikipedia’s rules the organisation’s staff can’t make one for their own organisation).

Bring your own idea for a page (we can send you some guidelines for doing pre-research) or edit something that’s already up. If you are able to please bring along a laptop or tablet- though we will have some available there won’t be enough for everyone.

Please register your attendance here for catering purposes and to receive information on how to set up your Wikipedia account
This event is a Wellington Rape Crisis members’ event. Current member/associate member of Wellington Rape Crisis attend for free. There will be an opportunity to join at the event or you can join online here ($20 for a year’s membership).
