Workshop Project Wiki (WPW) is a growing archive of radical and experimental proposals for design education, curricula and pedagogy.

Initiated by Workshop Project the Wiki serves as a platform for exchange, production and documentation. Design educators can request a user log-in to join the project and become editors.

The Structure

As an editor you read, edit and create articles and use the embedded note pad, a real-time collaborative editing tool that comes with every article. The combination of wiki articles and note pads offers an infrastructure to collaborate on writing syllabi, resource lists, manifestos, curricula, etc. The note pads can be used to draft, brainstorm and set agendas. The wiki articles offer a more elaborate form of editing, and can be used to finalize and structure text as well as add media such as images and videos.

Editing & Creating Articles

The editing process can be tracked back in the note pads and wiki articles. Changes can be made and undone.

To create a wiki article you can either type the desired title for your article in the search window. You will get notified that the article does not exist yet. You can then hit “Create page” in the top menu and start editing!

The Wiki Syntax

Wiki uses it's own syntax, a wiki mark-up, which is comparable to mark-down. You can make use of the tool bar on the top of each article to mark-up your texts or use this style guide that lists the Wiki Syntax. You can add a diverse range of media. This is a page that shows examples for adding and embedding media files.

Workshop Project Wiki was designed and developed in June 2017 for Workshop Project as an experiment in design education by Anja Groten and André Fincato of the Amsterdam-based collective Hackers & Designers–using DokuWiki–an open source, wiki software that doesn't require a database, using a clean and readable markdown syntax.
