Project Plan




Tell us how you'll carry out your project. Be sure to answer the following questions:
1. How many walks/tours will you organize and how many people on each walk?

There will be 6 photowalks and 2 participants. Each tour will cover one institution and environs.

2. What kind of content will the walks focus on? Why is this topic a priority?

Articles on higher institutions currently documented on English Wikipedia lack images and as such, need pictures to have a better engagement for readers. Hence, we will focus on the Main Entrances, Libraries, Monuments, Architecture etc in the universities whose articles are presently represented on Wikipedia. These pictures when got will be used on the following articles namely: Federal University of Technology Owerri, Hezekiah University, Imo State Polytechnic, Eastern Palm University, Imo State University, Imo State College of Education

3. How have you let relevant Wikimedia communities know about this proposal? You are required to provide links to on-wiki pages to inform these communities about your proposed work. Examples of places where this can be done include community discussion pages, affiliate discussion pages, or relevant project talk pages.
You may also provide information about external social media channels you may be using.

I have made a notification about this project on the Wikimedia User Group Nigeria Community

4. How will you let participants know about the photowalk? In what ways will you be communicating with them?
For example, these can include on-wiki spaces, social media channels, mailing lists, messaging apps, or physical/online gatherings.

We are going to use WhatsApp, Google meets and other means necessary.

5. What is the plan to ensure images will be used on Wikimedia projects?

The participants will upload the pictures to commons after the photowalks and use them on the corresponding articles.

6. Do participants have the equipment or skills needed to participate and contribute high quality content? If not, how will you support them?

Participants do not have the camera for this project. Hence, we will rent 2 cameras for the participants. They will also be tutored before the project begins.

7. Is there anything else you want to tell us about this project?

This project will serve to bridge the gap on the subject area on both commons, en-wikipedia and even beyond.

8. Are you running any in-person events or activities? If so, you will need to complete the steps outlined on the Risk Assessment protocol related to COVID-19. When you have completed these steps, please provide a link to your completed copy of the risk assessment tool below:
