Four A+F Wikipedia Saturdays in Accra, Ghana- 2 mins
Long story short, we all use and copy Wikipedia but the sad thing is just a handful of us give back; am refering to adding content. If you already don’t know Wikipedia is made by people like you and I who use it everyday.
March is Art+Feminism month of course International Women’s Day is in March too and glad I am a March born :D.
Before I continue, note that eventhough everyone can contribute to Wikipedia it is not a toy box, playground or a tool for marketting and proving that you are the best blogger in Ghana or the world, and it is not a marketing tool I repeat.
Art and Feminism (stylized as Art+Feminism) is an annual worldwide edit-a-thon to add content to Wikipedia about female artists. – Wikipedia
Wikimedia Ghana User Group is the oldest user group in Ghana working towards shared knowledge and mission of the Global Wikimedia movement.
I participated in the 4 continuous sessions as both volunteer assistant and facilitator. Weekend 1 through to 3 was opened to both male and female participnats. It was focused on getting both intermediate contributors up to speed and helping new contributors get started.
Articles contributed to or created were targed at women with little or no coverage who actually met WP:Notabiity.
