National Reconciliation Week 2021 - Wikipedia editing sessions – More than a Word

Wikipedia articles for Australian towns and places are a great starting point to build your knowledge of the respective local Indigenous community and Country. However, many Wikipedia articles do not provide information such as Traditional Owners or custodians, place names, Nations or language groups, and do not reflect First Australians’ ongoing cultures and continuing connection to Country.

Join us for a Wikipedia editing session (online or in person), offered as part of National Reconciliation Week (27 May to 3 June 2021), to:

  • learn how to edit Wikipedia
  • start learning about Indigenous perspectives on the places and towns of interest to you.
