Europeana Fashion Editathon 2013 11.jpg

Fashion is one of Wikipedia's weakest areas in terms of coverage and this edit-a-thon is a first step in changing this. By bringing together experienced Wikipedians with energetic and knowledgeable students and subject matter experts, we hope to take some initial steps in taking fashion to Wikipedia. This edit-a-thon takes place on the 22 March from 10:30 to 20:00 at Nordiska museet in Stockholm. This event is organized in cooperation between Wikimedia Sverige, Nordiska museet, Stockholm University as well as Europeana and Europeana Fashion.

During the event participants will come together to edit and contribute new information to Wikipedia by using the digital collections shared by the Nordiska museet. The goal of the edit-a-thon is to improve and increase the presence of fashion related information on Wikipedia and spread knowledge about the collections of the Nordiska museet, Europeana Fashion and Wikipedia as sources of information. The theme is fashion, folk costume history and casual wear through the last centuries.

Through our fantastic collaboration we can offer snacks, coffee and tea during the edit-a-thon, a lunch in the restaurant at the Nordic Museum and at the end of the day there will be time for a mingle with wine or soft drinks and snacks. Our experience is that it is essential that blood sugar is kept at a reasonable level for the writing to be as fun as possible!

So join us to help improve Wikipedia, to meet nice people and create new, or improve existing, articles about fashion! The event has a limited number of places so we ask that you pre-register as soon as you can. An unlimited number of participants can however join online and work with the articles (please sign up here)!

Here we will add images from the Nordic Museum linked to the matching articles!

We want to know more of what these images can tell us! Help us to put them in context!

Next to the images there are suggestions for articles that you can create or expand and illustrate with the images. There are also links to the English articles that you can translate to or from.

If you have other suggestions for articles that you would like to work on and use the images for you are more than welcome!

Feel free to add more suggestions for what articles the images can illustrate.

  • ok - on the en:Wiki Category:Norwegian clothing could surely do with expansion, & we have no article on Viking costume or similar. Btw the British Museum has a big Viking exhibition in 2014, with lots of loans from Scandinavian museums, & we will be trying to get a GLAM project going across several language wikis. This would be a good start. I'm not too sure where the gaps are in later general European fashion. Johnbod (disk) 19 mars 2013 kl. 18.56 (CET)Svara[svara]
