For the first time, the president of Wikimedia Australia is coming to Darwin! He’s here to provide a week of training and discussion about Wikipedia and launch a new initiative Wikiclub NT, a series of monthly meet-ups that will create and improve pages about Northern Territory history, people and places.

It’s a rare opportunity to find out how to use it for these purposes and more, and why some leading universities, museums, galleries, archives and libraries are so interested in using Wikipedia.

Please join us at Northern Institute for an open discussion about Wikipedia. Learn a bit about what W...ikipedia is about, how it works and its potential for the Northern Territory.

Please RSVP by noon Tuesday 21 June via email to thenortherninstitute@cdu.edu.au
This presentation will be recorded and uploaded to our Vimeo & You Tube channels
