In our preparations to wrap-up this year's annual campaign, we would like
you to add your event's statistics to Wikidata. Specifically, for each
event that you organised please add information about
- location of the event
- number of participants
- point in time (i.e. when it happened)
- official website (ideally a dashboard link should suffice)
The Wikidata item to add the statement and qualifiers to is Art+Feminism's
2021 campaign <https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q105585290>. (For reference,
please see the item from the previous year's campaign
<https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q95116664>). If added correctly, your event
will show up on this 2021 map <https://w.wiki/3gTb>, and when you click on
the coordinate location you should see the number of participants, date and
Dashboard link. For reference, please see the map from the previous year's
*Why are we doing this?*
This will allow us to properly organise our annual campaigns' metrics into
structured data format so that we can query the data over time and location.
*Will event organisers do this every year?*
Yes! Event organisers should add this information to Wikidata during/after
their program has happened until the end of an annual campaign cycle.
*But how do I go about it?*
Wikimedia Commons (and its talk page
demonstrates how you can add the 4 data points to Wikidata.
*How do I get help if I'm stuck?*
You can reach out to me directly, or ask publically on the Wikimedia
Commons video talk page. We will also be hosting a community hours session
in August to address any remaining challenges anyone might have. A date for
the community hours will be communicated shortly.
Let me know if you have any questions.
