Queer history and queer culture are not as represented on Wikipedia as they should be. Many of the filmmakers and films that we screen this year at XPOSED or have screened in the past do not have Wikipedia articles in any language, despite having won awards and being of relevance for queer and feminist film history. We want to change this – and would love for you to be a part of it!
The best thing is: You don’t need any previous knowledge! In this workshop, you will learn how to edit Wikipedia articles in English, German or any other language that you want to write in. We will show you the basics you need to know to edit Wikipedia. You can then choose an article to work on by yourself or in collaboration with others – and help to give queer experimental film more online exposure.
You could come on either Friday or Saturday or on both days. Please let us know that you’re coming by writing a short email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If possible, please bring a laptop – they work much better than smartphones for editing Wikipedia.
