This workshop series is being co-presented by CAPACOA, the Conseil québécois du théâtre, the Regroupement Québécois de la danse and other partner associations, with the support of LaCogency for members of Canada’s performing arts community.
What is Wikidata?
It’s a free and open knowledge base linked to Wikipedia. Like Wikipedia, Wikidata is also a source of information crawled and trusted by search engines. Having a Wikidata entry is a vital first step in making information about Canada’s performing arts sector findable, readable and reusable by online search and recommendation engines and technologies. In a way, it’s like creating an IMDB for the performing arts.
Starting November 3rd at 3:30 p.m. EDT (and with subsequent online workshops being held every first Wednesday of the month until May 2022) this workshop series begins with a 1.5-hour introductory session intended for a beginner audience. The objective of this first workshop is to help you discover Wikidata. The workshop will involve both demonstrations as well as guided practice in breakout sessions. Participants can then choose to register for any of the remaining Wikdata workshops to deepen their skills and knowledge.
