Cultural Venues Datathon

April 25 - May 2

Produced by LaCogency, CAPACOA and with the support of many partners, the Cultural Venues (Wiki)Datathon will bring participants together to work in a relaxed and informal session to populate Wikidata with information about the many cultural venues we know and love.

Wikidata needs data on your cultural venues!

The Cultural Venues Datathon is being offered in both English and French with 4 separate drop-in sessions dedicated to each language. See the datathon program  below. 

No previous experience with Wikidata is required. At each session experienced wikidatians, will guide participants on how to input cultural venue information into Wikidata. This (Wiki)Datathon is intended to be a unifying activity that supports the overall goals of the Wikiproject Cultural venues.

When: Monday, April 25, 2022 to Friday, April 30, 2022 for editing activities and a grand plenary on Monday, May 2, 2022, to close the datathon.

Attendance at every session is not mandatory but for the best datathon experience, we encourage you to join us for the launch and at least one of the editing activity dates. On May 2 we’ll celebrate all hard work with a presentation of our results.
