About[edit | edit source]

Two Wikipedia editing workshops will be held as part of the official launch of the 'Remembering for Peace' exhibition. This exhibition was created as part of the Wales for Peace project which aims to engage people in discovering, sharing and learning from the peace heritage of Wales. The Wikipedia workshops will focus on helping people improve related content on Wikipedia. The effects of war on Welsh society, dilemmas and choices faced by Welsh conscientious objectors, and the stories of key peacemakers all need to be properly represented on Wikipedia and this can be achieved by improving or creating Wikipedia articles.
