The next in our series of Europeana Fashion edit-a-thons will take place at Les Arts Décoratifs in Paris on 22 March 2014. You are invited to come and write about the theme fashion and craftmanship on Wikipedia!
Not only will you learn how to write on Wikipedia, edit-a-thons are also a great way to meet like-minded people from all corners of the fashion sector and there will be plenty of networking opportunities during the breakfast, lunch and drinks after.
You can also participate in a tour of the museum’s latest fashion exhibition Dries Van Noten – Inspirations. The exhibition perfectly completements the theme of the day “fashion and craftmanship” as Dries Van Noten is known for his intricate detailing.
Participating in the fashion edit-a-thon is entirely free. You can register via email@example.com.
Please note that an introduction to writing on Wikipedia will take place at Les Arts Décoratifs on 13 March from 16h until 18h. The working language of both days is French. You can find more information on the website of Les Arts Décoratifs.
