Wikidata Tour Down Under (2018)
Andy Mabbett visited Australia for four weeks in September/ October 2018. He toured five states talking about Wikipedia, Wikidata and their sister projects, and how they impact GLAMs, and research, as well as explaining how institutions can work with the community of volunteers who maintain those projects, to mutual benefit.
The programme was a sequel to Andy's three-week Wikidata Tour Down Under (2016).
