What's it all about?

Everyone uses Wikipedia, but how do you edit it? How do you add your own photos to articles? This free workshop for youth (13-25 age group) will set you up with a Wikimedia account and cover writing for Wikipedia, referencing, filling knowledge gaps about the West Coast and local history, and uploading your own photos to the Commons. Anyone keen to continue can join the West Coast Task Force and help tell West Coast stories online.

Free Event - Email Mike at mike.dickison@westlib.co.nz to register.

Mike Dickison is a Digital Discovery Librarian at Westland District Library and former New Zealand Wikipedian at Large.
