Event description

Description

Please join us for a Wikipedia Edit-a-thon! In collaboration with UNESCO's International Year of Indigenous Languages and the University of Toronto's Indigenous Education Week, our goal is to promote Indigenous Art and Languages on Wikipedia!

Our aim is to add, edit, and possibly even create, articles about Indigenous Language Films, Directors, and/or Producers that have been nominated or have won awards, and have screened at the ImagineNATIVE Film Festival.

No previous experience working with Wikipedia is required, and there will be people on site to help, as well as a brief crash course on Wikipedia editing.

Everyone is welcome to attend, but please RSVP by ordering a free ticket, as there is a limited number of computers in the lab.
