On Monday 29 October we organise in Brussels a Wikidata workshop for (mainly) institutions. The workshop is inspired on the earlier successful workshop in the Netherlands in May.
- When? Monday 29 October 2018. Coffee, lunch and a 'borrel' (drinks) will be provided.
- Where? Royal Library of Belgium, Brussels (next to Brussels Central railway station).
- For whom? These workshops are suitable for staff of cultural organizations (GLAMs) who want to learn (more) about Wikidata (and structured data on Wikimedia Commons). A maximum of about 40 people can attend.
- How to participate? The workshop day has already been fully booked. You are still welcome to join the Wikidata birthday party at the end of the afternoon.
- How to prepare?
- Bring your laptop! Editing Wikidata on a tablet or mobile phone is not very user friendly yet - a laptop is highly recommended.
- If you don't have a Wikidata account yet (same account as on Wikipedia), please create one before the event. You can do that here: Special:CreateAccount
The workshop will be given in English. Individual coaching can be done in any language (spoken by the coach).
