Performing Arts Aotearoa on Wikipedia

DND books and computer.jpg
Lisa started editing during a workshop (edit-a-thon) run by the Dowse Art Museum in Lower Hutt focusing in Māori women artists.
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 and recently The Treaty of Waitangi. ~ Lisa  

The Wikimedia Foundation has funded Lisa to coordinate a four month Performing Arts Aotearoa project to create quality content on dance, theatre and other forms of performing arts in Wikipedia, Wikidata and Wikimedia Commons.


The project is May to September 2021.
