Scope edit

The scope of this project covers all articles relating to the fine arts and performing arts.

Goals edit

  1. Fostering an active and interdisciplinary arts community on Wikipedia. Currently WikiProjects related to the arts suffer from long periods of inactivity, so what is needed is a single Wikiproject bringing together users of differing specialities, in the mould of the successful Science WikiProject. Contributors interested in the arts are vastly outnumbered by pop or geek culture experts as it is, so it is better to co-ordinate the efforts of the former group as much as possible than to segregate them into insular and unsuccessful WikiProjects on their particular topic of interest.
  2. Maintaining the Arts Wikiportal, one of the most prominent links on the Main Page, and its subportals.
  3. Starting an arts collaboration of the week. This will only go ahead when a sufficient number of participants have expressed their support for a weekly collaboration to be effective.
