Jazz Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon
Celebrate Kansas City’s rich jazz heritage by joining us for a Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon and jam session! You will learn about Wikipedia, the free online encyclopedia, the anatomy of a Wiki article, and how to contribute to this free online encyclopedia.
We will focus on creating and developing articles that preserve our history from local jazz musicians, to the historic jazz clubs throughout the 18th & Vine and 12th & Vine districts, to the community leaders whose legacies continue to live on.
What to bring:
- limited laptops will be available but please bring a laptop and a power cord if you are able.
- your instrument if you are a musician and would like to jam
To participate in this session you don’t need specialized knowledge of these topics or of Wikipedia. Please create a free account on wikipedia.org before the event if you're able. We will have plenty of reference material and a limited number of laptops available.
