On this page you'll find a list of dates when Wikipedia Editing workshops are scheduled to take place, along with essential links.

If you plan to come to any of the workshops we recommend you bring a laptop with you. Wi-fi will be available on site.

If you like, you can also learn a little about editing ahead of time by following the official Wikipedia Tutorial, or see Getting started on Wikipedia for more information.

These workshops are normally designed as instructional sessions of an introductory nature or focusing on specific advanced aspects of editing. We also hold Edit-a-thons where you can come along and create or edit articles about a specific topic. Sometimes the edit-a-thons will also feature a quick guide for new editors (or a refresher for novices) to ensure that participants can take part in the proceedings more fully.

Upcoming events

Upcoming workshops will be listed here. Please check back later or follow us on Facebook or Twitter.

  1. CREATE A WIKIPEDIA USER ACCOUNT (if you don't already have one)
  2. Bring a laptop or wifi-enabled tablet device with you, if you have one

If you like, you can also learn a little about editing ahead of time here or here.
