Celebrate Kansas City's rich jazz heritage by joining us for a Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon and jam session!  You will learn about Wikipedia, the free online encyclopedia, the anatomy of a Wiki article, and how to contribute to it.

We will focus on creating and developing articles that preserve our history from local jazz musicians, to the historic jazz clubs throughout the 18th & Vine and 12th & Vine districts, to the community leaders whose legacies continue to live on.

What to bring:
  • If you are able, bring a laptop and a power cord.  Limited laptops will be available for use.
  • Your instrument if you are a musician and would like to jam

To participate in this session you don't need specialized knowledge of these topics or of Wikipedia.  

Please create a free account at www.wikipedia.org before the event if you are able.  We will have plenty of reference material.
