Default Keyword list

I know the definition of "Keyword" as used by Lightroom. So that's not my question.

I also know how to tag a photo with a keyword in Lightroom, so that's not my question either.

I'm looking to create a list of keywords that a group of photographers and a group of users to use. Here's what I'm trying to do: At our church, we have 30 or so photographers who photography various events that our church sponsors. We post photos and later, our Social Media team searches for photos for a particular purpose. Right now, they visually scroll thru pages and pages of photos looking for a photo to use. What we want to do is tag photos with keywords to help them find what they need.

The idea is that we need a list of keywords that we all use. All photographers need to use the same keywords all the searchers need to use that same keyword list.

So I'd like to find keyword lists that we can start with in creating our single list. The long way of doing this is to create our own keyword list from scratch. I'd like to find existing lists and save our best thinking for editing the list and adding our unique needs to the list.

Do you know of a keyword list that I can copy and get our keyword list started?

Faithfully yours,
