Project Plan[edit]


Tell us how you'll carry out your project. Be sure to answer the following questions:

1. Are you doing one editathon or training or a series of editathons or trainings?

Wiki Loves Fashion is a serie of events which happen from 1 September to 15 October, on line and one in person event in Florence.

2. How will you let your community know about the event? Please paste links below to where relevant communities have been notified of your proposal, and to any other relevant community discussions.

3. Do you have experienced Wikimedia editors to lead the event?

Villa Favard - Polimoda Library
Yes, we have 5 experienced wikipedians

4. Do participants have the equipment or skills needed to participate and contribute high quality content? If not, how will you support them?

Yes. For the experienced users we provide two Wikidata list with articles to be written (women models and women fashion designers) and a wiki list with articles to be improved. For the new users we have a list of checked articles to write. We also created during the time two guides (How to create an account and How to translate an article). We will also provide a training session with the basics of Wikipedia, and we will have 5 expert wikipedians to help to this event.

5. How will you engage participants after the event(s)?

The event will be host by a private university, and we have been assured that many students will want to participate. For a good communication we would like to create a poster and brochures where illustrate the Wiki Loves Fashion campaign, present the WikiDonne project that deals with the gender gap in Italian Wikipedia and to explain other Wikimedia projects we would like to involve in the campaign (Commons, Wikidata, Wikiquote, Wikibooks, Wikinews).

6. Is there anything else you want to tell us about this project?

Wiki Loves Fashion together with Wiki Loves Sport campaign, is one of the two campaignes ideated for WikiDonne roadmap grant that was returned. Is a way to put together communities and projects are working on the same front.

  5. 100 articles to be created or improved
