CAPACOA’s Linked Digital Future Initiative is pleased to partner with the Manitoba Arts Network to host this free workshop opportunity to help music artists improve their digital presence using Wikidata!
Date: Tuesday, December 14th, 2021
Time: 2:00-3:00 p.m. CST / 3:00-4:00 p.m. EST
What is Wikidata?
It’s a free and open knowledge base linked to Wikipedia. Like Wikipedia, Wikidata is also a source of information crawled and trusted by internet search engines. Having a Wikidata entry is an important first step in making information about the performing arts sector findable, readable and reusable by search engines, by industry associations and by fans. In a way, using Wikidata is like creating an IMDb for the performing arts.
How this workshop will help you?
In this 1-hour session, you will learn the basics of Wikidata, including how to create your own entry to describe yourself and your work. Participants can expect hands-on learning through demonstrations and guided practice in a relaxed and informal environment. By the end of the workshop, you will have achieved greater control over how people can find you – and what they can find about you – online.
