Event description

Description

Galleries, Libraries, Archives, and Museums (GLAM) professionals, Wikipedians, and community members are invited to a one-day summit focused on the ways Wikimedia projects such as Wikipedia, Wikidata, and the Wikimedia Commons can increase the impact of collections and provide opportunities for community engagement.

Participants will hear examples and find inspiration of the ways the Wikimedia projects are actively being used and the different pathways this participation can take. There will also be opportunities for discussion and workshopping on Wikimedia project strategies.

This meeting is an extension of the Music in Canada @ 150 Wikipedia project. The organizers would like to acknowledge the support of the Wikimedia Foundation; Ryerson University; and York University.
