Art & Culture
Wiki Loves Monuments (WLM) is a public photo competition focusing on cultural heritage monuments. The photos are donated for use on Wikipedia.
We hosted the global Wiki Loves Monuments in 2012 & 2017 in Ghana.
Wiki Loves Africa (WLA) is an annual contest where anyone across Africa can contribute media that is relevant to their experience to Wikimedia Commons for use on Wikipedia and other project websites of the Wikimedia Foundation.
We organised Wiki Loves Africa 2014
We created Wiki For Election 2012 Ghana to improve and create articles that were related to Ghana’s election 2012, so people can find encyclopedic material on it.
We created Wikipedia Election 2016 Project to improve Wikipedia’s coverage of Ghana’s 2016 general elections.
We recruited a WiR for parliamentary constituencies in Ghana. The project was to update and create articles of Parliamentary constituencies in Ghana.
Ghana’s constituencies have been re-demarcated since 2012 however not all the changes had been captured on Wikipedia.
The Wikipedian In Residence (WiR)’s job was to improve content, find documents to be used as sources and organise two workshops where existing editors can join in the content improvement.
We have partnered with the following conferences:
1. Africa Open Data Conference 2017, Accra
2. Forum on Internet Freedom in Africa 2018 (FIFAfrica)
3. re:publica Accra
Freedom of Panorama Campaign launched at re:publica Accra
