Adding people

To add a performing arts person please create the person in Wikidata and fill in the following required fields. Please add as much data as possible to help cases that require disambiguation. We recommend linking social media profiles, and external global IDs like ISNI, but these are not mandatory.

Artsdata uses ShEx to validate data for import. If the data passes the ShEx validation, the person will automatically be added to in a couple of days.
