Everything you wanted to know about Wikipedia but were too afraid to ask event – Monday 7th June, Brettenham House, London
Liam Wyatt is Vice President of Wikimedia Australia and a historian. He has recently been appointed as the first “volunteer Wikipedian in residence” at the British Museum – the first residency of its kind anywhere in the world. His principle task there will be to build a relationship between the Museum and the Wikipedian community through a range of activities, both internally and public-facing.
The Strategic Content Alliance is running a free event on the afternoon of Monday, 7th June (two sessions about 2 hours or so in duration). At this event, Liam will be drawing on his experience in bringing the museum and Wikipedia communities together to present a museum-sector-specific overview on the opportunities, benefits and challenges of working with Wikimedia. After his presentation, and along with other Wikipedians attending, there will be the opportunity for in-depth discussions and Q&A.
