Voting for Change edit-a-thon

People’s History Museum and Working Class Movement Library are working together to acquire material related to the fight for the vote, from the Peterloo protest in 1819 to lowering the voting age in 1969. We need your help to share knowledge of these significant moments in British history and invite you to come and spend a day editing Wikipedia. Wikimedians Tomasz W. Kozlowski and Doug Taylor will be on hand to show you the ropes, and staff from both venues will help decipher source material. Please bring a laptop, and we’ll provide the coffee!

In partnership with Wikimedia UK. Supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund. Part of UK Parliament Week 2016.

Suitable for adults and young people – particularly suitable for those with experience of editing Wikipedia or knowledge of British political history.
