That’s A Wrap on Wikipedia Dance Project Phase 1

October 31, 2019
Phase 1 of the Wikipedia Dance Project recently came to a successful conclusion with a great session in St. John’s, Newfoundland.

Over the course of almost a year, much was learned, much work was completed and the realization of the enormity of the task at hand – raising and improving the profile of Canadian dance artists on Wikipedia – has truly sunk in. We are so grateful for the support of our funders, our partners, friends and local heroes who eased the stress of working in new locations, whip smart participants and our patient and expert Wikipedian mentors. Here are just a few of articles created or improved through this initiative:
