Wikipedia Correctathon 2SER FM

Wikipedia Correctathon 2SER FM
Correcting Australian music articles on Wikipedia
We invite you to join us as “Record Correctors”, scholars, musicians, journalists, archivists and passionate fans all working to ensure that Australian popular music is given due representation in the world’s biggest online and open access research resource. Our emphasis is on minority/traditionally underrepresented groups in particular, as well as ensuring current entries of importance are given contemporary context.

The day will include formal instruction and explanation by Wikimedia Australia experts Belinda Spry and James Gaunt, where we learn practical ways to correct existing Wikipedia content and ultimately add to the richness and reliability of the outlet as a source of current and historical information about Australian popular music.

As well as the Wiki workshops, we will also spend some time considering how we might go forward as “Record Correctors” - considering who and what to target next and how to go about this.
