About this campaign[edit]

The “Music and Belonging: Music in Canada at 150 Wikipedia Project” is a multifaceted campaign which pairs the professional skills of librarians and archivists with academics, music historians, musicians, students and local music communities to increase the quality and amount of content about Canadian musicians in Wikipedia and Wikidata thereby increasing the accessibility to music culture for all Canadians and the wider online community. Please see the project webpage for detailed information and training and outreach materials.

The project is being funded through a Wikimedia Foundation Project Grant and the York University Canada 150 fund.
