Event description

Description

As part of the International Museum Day celebrations, we are running a Wikipedia Edit-a-thon at ACMI X. We'll be focusing on creating pages for the Victorian museums who don't have one (you'd be surprised how many don't!) and updating and expanding the pages for those who do.

We’ll be at the venue, ACMI X, from 10am-5pm. Drop in any time and stay for as long (or short) as you like. If you’ve never used Wikipedia before, we’ll also be running training sessions at the start of the day (10:15am) and just after lunch (1:30pm) for those who need them.

This event is open to anyone, particularly those with an interest in museums, public history, and Wikipedia.

BYO laptop!

You can drop in when you like or you can come in for the whole day, whatever suits you best. But please do register so we know who's coming.

For those of you who want to participate but can't make it in, no problem! You can play along at home by first registering here and then following the twitter hashtags on the day - #IMD2018 and #editathon. Your hosts for the event are @mikejonesmelb and @sayraphim

If you don’t have a Wikipedia account and want to hit the ground running, you can register before the event. It's free and easy to do, click here: https://preview.tinyurl.com/ycpng6kt and follow the prompts. Otherwise, we can help you out on the day.

ACMI X is inside The Primrose Potter Australian Ballet Centre building, part of the Southbank arts precinct among many of Melbourne's arts organisations. While the street address is Kavanagh St, the best way to get to ACMI X is to follow the walkway between the NGV and the Arts Centre. Behind the Arts Centre you will see the blue ACMI X sign across the overpass.
