Upcoming events

Documenting Maltese heritage through Wikipedia - public discussion

  • Date: 2 February 2017
  • Time: 6pm
  • Location: Studio B, Spazju Kreattiv

This discussion will focus on thinking about how organisations and interested citizens can bring more attention to Maltese heritage, culture and art through its documentation on Wikipedia, and how to incorporate such practices into their ongoing work and into the national digital cultural strategies. The debate will bring together highly-experienced international Wikimedians and local policy makers and cultural professionals.

The discussion addresses a real gap in the cultural sector for guidance on institutional strategies related to engagement with the citizens, and will discuss how to effectively direct limited resources towards engagement of communities in the digital space.

Speakers: Xabier Cañas (Donostiapedia, Donostia/San Sebastián 2016) Birte Christense-Dalsgaard (Digital Humanities Lab Denmark) John Cummings (Wikimedian-in-residence, UNESCO) Sandro Debono (MUŻA) Rebecca O'Neill (Wikimedia Ireland) Vincent Zammit (Institute for Tourism Studies) Velislava Hillman (University of Westminster)

The discussion will be chaired by Professor Seamus Ross (University of Toronto). Facebook event page here.
