This page links to knowledge exchange projects aimed at editing specific pages and sections within Wikipedia, through the lenses of anti-racism and decolonisation. This currently includes:
1911 Festival of Empire – a project seeking to make this example of local imperialist propaganda more visible through Wikipedia and digital revisualisation and for it to be examined through a decolonial lens.
London’s Colonial Her/Histories – a project inviting and supporting people to examine London’s colonial her/histories and legacies, through an anti-racist, decolonial lens, and to collectively update public knowledge of this through editing Wikipedia.
These projects are running in association with relevant galleries, libraries, archives and museums, and will include workshops and events on researching London’s colonial history and editing Wikipedia through an anti-racist, decolonial lens.
