Calling all Wikimedians interested in the First World War

This post was written by Stevie Benton, Wikimedia UK Communications Organiser

Yesterday I attended a workshop, organised by the Imperial War Museum, which focused on how to communicate the commemoration of the centenary of the First World War.

I took some extensive notes from the event which can be seen here. I recommend that anyone interested in First World War history give them a once over.

There’s an excellent opportunity for Wikimedians to lead on fascinating projects related to the centenary. To this end I’d really encourage all Wikimedians interested in doing any work around the First World War to get in touch by emailing and let us know.

There’s great potential for volunteer-driven projects related to this topic over the next few years and the Wikimedia UK office is looking forward to supporting you.
