Lisa created a Wikipedia account in November 2019 to write about Māori women artists at an edit-a-thon at the Dowse Art Museum

This is a project to improve content of New Zealand Aotearoa based Pasifika Arts. The goal is to increase biographies with a target of 50% new articles being women or non-binary folk. A Wikipedian-in-Residence component was funded by Creative New Zealand  and in that time 20 new articles were created.

In 2022 Lisa Maule & Sophia Coghini had a paper Pasifika Arts & Wikipedia accepted to the #WOW2022 Wikipedia conference in Sydney, Australia. 

In 2021 a four month grant awarded to Lisa Maule in 2021 by the US-based Wikimedia Foundation ran three edit-a-thons and created 107 new articles.

The current focus is arts festivals.
