Liam Wyatt is Vice President of Wikimedia Australia and a historian. He has
recently been appointed as the first "volunteer Wikipedian in residence" at
the British Museum - the first residency of its kind anywhere in the world.
His principle task there will be to build a relationship between the Museum
and the Wikipedian community through a range of activities, both internally
We are running a FREE event on the afternoon of Monday, 7th June (two
sessions about 2 hours or so in duration). At this event, Liam will be
drawing on his experience in bringing the museum and Wikipedia communities
together to present a museum-sector-specific overview on the opportunities,
benefits and challenges of working with Wikimedia. After his presentation,
and along with other Wikipedians attending, there will be the opportunity
for in-depth discussions and Q&A.
