Wikimedia UK – Connected Heritage: sharing cultural heritage online
8 October - 10:00 - 11:00 Free
Wikimedia UK is a registered charity and has received funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund to help heritage and cultural organisations develop skills, tools and communities of practice for the sustainable digital preservation of heritage.
In this one-hour webinar Leah Emary and Dr. Lucy Hinnie will introduce the Wikimedia projects, including Wikipedia, and outline the benefits of engaging with these sites. The talk will last for about 45 minutes, with 15 minutes for questions from the audience.
Wikipedia is read 22 billion times a month, making it one of the most visited websites in the world. It is a crucial way to share knowledge.
If you work or volunteer for a heritage or cultural organisation, please do come along.
After this webinar, participants will understand more about open knowledge; know how to follow up if they would like to continue with the project; and have resources and materials to make a case for participation to organisation leaders.
The webinar will be hosted on Zoom, with joining details sent via email.
