Using Wikidata to Improve your Digital Presence
December 14, 2021 at2:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
This free workshop is an opportunity to help music artists improve their digital presence using Wikidata!
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 internet search engines. Having a Wikidata entry is an important first step in making information about the performing arts sector findable, readable and reusable by search engines, by industry associations and by fans. In a way, using Wikidata is like creating an IMDb for the performing arts.
How this workshop will help you?
In this 1-hour session, you will learn the basics of Wikidata, including how to create your own entry to describe yourself and your work. Participants can expect hands-on learning through demonstrations and guided practice in a relaxed and informal environment. By the end of the workshop, you will have achieved greater control over how people can find you – and what they can find about you – online.
