San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
This is a workshop for people who may not have ever edited Wikipedia, but would like to help. Wikimedia has acquired copies of some very large collections of photographs, some of which would make great illustrations for Wikipedia articles, and many Wikipedia articles which don't currently have any pictures could be illustrated using these images.
What will you learn?
- What Wikipedia's image library, Wikimedia Commons is.
- How to search for images in Wikimedia Commons
- How to add images to Wikipedia
- How to add captions and a description for blind people to images
- Projects that would benefit: Wikipedia
This is a great start to editing Wikipedia and the related projects. Please come along! We will have an introductory session from 2-4pm, followed by a more informal workshop from 4-6pm.
When & Where
Wikimedia UK is the Wikimedia chapter covering the United Kingdom. We exist to help collect, develop and distribute freely licensed knowledge (and other educational, cultural and historic material). We do this by bringing the Wikimedia community in the UK together, and by building links with UK-based cultural institutions, universities, charities and other bodies. We also represent UK-based Wikimedians to the Wikimedia Foundation and the global Wikimedia movement.
Wikimedia UK is a registered charity. We are supported entirely by voluntary donations (principally through the annual Wikimedia fundraiser). Please note that we are a separate organization from the Wikimedia Foundation, and have no control over Wikipedia.
