Anyone can edit Wikipedia by clicking the [edit] button on a Wikipedia page. If you want more information, you can also take a look at the online tutorial. Another possibility 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 tailored Wikipedia  Workshops and Keynotes for your institution. 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.
