Proposed participation[edit]

I will be co-facilitating the Nnamdi Azikiwe Library post March 2018 Art+Feminism Edit-a-thon. I will join the event from Ghana via Google Hangout for two days. My participation involves:

  • Giving an introduction talk about Wikipedia and Art+Feminism events
  • Provide training and general support for participants with User:Ngozi osadebe who'll be the lead facilitator
  • Generate a proposed list of articles to work on
  • Answer questions from participants of the event

Goal and expected impact[edit]

The event is expected to attract as many as 30 new users. Our community as it stand reacts very poorly to edits from new users, a reason why their [new users] work need close monitoring. Although the key event organiser has previous experience with an A+F editathon, they would still need a helping hand this second time from a more experienced person to support up to 50 persons and respond adequately to their concerns.
