Using Wikidata to Improve your Digital Presence
December 14, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST
CAPACOA’s Linked Digital Future Initiative is pleased to partner with the Manitoba Arts Network to host this free workshop opportunity to help music artists improve their digital presence using Wikidata!
Date: Tuesday, December 14th, 2021
Time: 2:00-3:00 p.m. CST / 3:00-4:00 p.m. EST
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.
