The online encyclopedia Wikipedia gets its drive from a diversity of opinions, the exchange of knowledge and the publicity of discussions. It provides a public space of debate as well as a daily information source made by countless people worldwide. Although everybody can contribute to Wikipedia and its side-projects, the group of authors often donet represent the diversity of the general public . certain communities are still underrepresented. Upper Austrians are now invited to change that!
We offer monthly workshops (so called ,Edit-a-thons’) for free at Wissensturm Linz: During forenoon you get to know the basic principles for contributing to Wikipedia while in the afternoon we extend Wikipedia together with articles of your interest. No special skills are needed, just bring your enthusiasm for writing texts and sharing knowledge with others.
