Title: Working with organisations to make their content available on Wikimedia

Author: (insert also a link to your user page) John Cummings

Description: A workshop on working with organisations to make their content available on Wikimedia, the workshop will include:

  • Introducing Wikimedia to external organisations
  • Explaining to an organisation why contributing to Wikimedia fits with their work and can benefit them.
  • Organising work to make it sustainable.
  • Importing content to Wikimedia projects including Wikimedia Commons, Wikipedia and Wikidata.
  • Measuring impact of the work.

People who have experience working with external organisations can work with people with less experience to plan their work.

Purpose: Provide people with an overview of working with external organisations and plan how to approach and work with them.

Targeted participants:

  • People interested in working with external organisations e.g GLAMs
  • People with more experience who can offer advice.

Preparatory readings or materials: Having an organisation in mind that you would like to work with would be helpful
