WikiTuesday in Hamilton
Inspired by Western University Libraries, WikiTuesday is a monthly, free workshop series open to all. Taking place on the first Tuesday of each month at locations across Hamilton, these workshops aim to improve the content of Wikipedia, increase the number of Canadian contributors, take advantage of our collective knowledge (about anything!) and promote the broad sharing and access to information to anyone, anywhere.
All are welcome to attend Wiki Tuesday, an informal gathering of folks who are interested in working collaboratively on Wikimedia projects. This is a drop-in event for Wiki editors of all skill levels from complete beginner to expert. The work of this group is organized by the Hamilton WikiClub.
