This Wikimedia projects workshop is composed of a practical introduction to the projects and a hands-on editathon in the morning followed by a more detailed workshop and exploration of GLAM focused case studies in the afternoon. The workshop is hosted by the NMMC and benefits GLAMs in Cornwall by helping to increase public engagement with the collections of artefacts, artworks, archives and educational material that the institutions hold, both by planning how providing different forms of physical and virtual access for volunteers can improve presentation of the material on Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons, and by organizing public events and longer term projects to publish/promote educational open knowledge.
The workshop is expected to include between 10 to 16 participants, with some joining in the afternoon session.
