Get involved!

Start editing Wikipedia today! Get ready with an online tutorial or just hit the [edit] button. Another alternative is to join one of our Wikipedia writing-ateliers or edit-a-thons. All the upcoming dates can be found in the Events section.

The association also offers custom-tailored Wikipedia workshops and Keynotes for institutions. Do get in touch so that we can understand your needs and come up with the best solution. We can train your staff, help them edit Wikipedia and upload pictures from institutional collections onto Wikimedia Commons under an open licence. We can also help you run Wikimedia-related projects and events.
