New Zealand cartoonists and comic artists on Wikipedia
Dr Mike Dickison is at the Library as Wikipedian in residence for January and February, thanks to a grant from the Wikimedia Foundation.
This is one of a number of events he will be running in association with the Library. We’re thrilled to be working with him to highlight the work of New Zealand cartoonists and comics artists.
We're improving the coverage of New Zealand cartoonists and comic artists in Wikipedia!
Come along, even if you've never edited Wikipedia before; keen writers/researchers and comics fans welcome.
What you'll be doing
There will be an introduction to Wikipedia editing at the start, and experienced editors available to help.
We'll be creating articles about contemporary artists, improving others, adding references and images, and helping correct Wikipedia's gender bias.
Timetable and other useful information
There's lots of useful information about what to expect and what to bring on wikipedia.
Comic artists we want you!
Comics artists are especially welcome to attend, and invited to donate a representative sample of their work (or a self-portrait) to Commons to illustrate their article.
