Performing Arts Aotearoa on Wikipedia

Lisa started editing Wikipdia during a workshop run by the Dowse Art Museum in Lower Hutt focusing in Māori women artists in 2019. The Wikimedia Foundation has funded Lisa to coordinate a four month Performing Arts Aotearoa project. Lisa is on the look out for other people to join in.

I discovered a surprising lack of articles about the arts in Aotearoa. I write on Wikipedia as a volunteer mostly content about women & performing arts in Aotearoa. ~ Lisa  

The Performing Arts Aotearoa Wikiproject has goals to create quality content on dance, theatre and other forms of performing arts in Wikipedia, Wikidata and Wikimedia Commons, and runs from May to September 2021.

Wikipedia  is the 5th-most-visited website in the world, and comes near the top in search results.  Editing is by volunteers, it is open source and not for any commercial gain; currently, there are about 250,000 editors (Wikipedians) around the world. Lisa has targets for increasing infromation about women, Indigenous people and people of colour that are currently under-represented in Wikipedia. She is also seeking out alternative and activist arts as this also tends to get overlooked in mainstream reporting.
