Help us edit articles on Hong Kong visual culture by joining our Wikipedia Edit-a-thon onsite at M+ Research Centre.
Wikipedia Asian Month 2023: Edit-a-thon on Hong Kong Performance Art and Moving Image brings participants together to discuss, create, and improve Wikipedia articles about Hong Kong visual culture, with a focus on performance art and moving image. This event is part of AAA and M+’s ongoing effort to contribute to discussions about the representation of art and visual culture in Asia on open-source knowledge platforms. Organised with the assistance of Wikimedia Community User Group Hong Kong, the workshop is held during Wikipedia Asian Month 2023—an annual online event that addresses the underrepresentation of articles about Asia on Wikipedia.
Learn more about the Wikipedia Edit-a-thon series and browse previous entries that participants have added, edited, or translated.
The event is free and open to the public with registration. We welcome anyone interested in learning about editing Wikipedia to attend, regardless of experience or background.
Before the Edit-a-thon:
- Create a Wikipedia account.
- Enrol as an editor on the event dashboard. (Passcode: visualculture)
- Prepare ideas for creating or improving articles on Wikipedia. If you need inspiration, take a look at our suggested articles and online resources, which we will continue to update up to the event.
- If you’re new to Wikipedia, watch the tutorial video below or download our tutorial presentation and booklet.
On the Day of the Edit-a-thon:
There will be a thirty-minute tutorial at the beginning of the session, led by the AAA and M+ teams. The Hong Kong Wikimedia User Group will assist us with technical questions. Please remember to bring your laptop, power cord, and, if you want to prepare beforehand, sources for your chosen article(s). Books and research materials—as well as coffee, tea, and refreshments—will be provided.
