Projects do not always go according to plan. Sharing what you learned can help you and others plan similar projects in the future. Help the movement learn from your experience by answering the following questions:

  • What worked well?

Participants created more articles and uploaded more photos than expected.

  • What did not work so well?

The visit at the Museo Diocesano Tridentino went long and there was not much time left for the edit-a-thon. Still, we were able to improve existing articles and create new ones.

  • What would you do differently next time?

We would keep the visit shorter to have more time for the edit-a-thon. Instead, we could do more events in the same place in order to have enough time to visit and for the edit-a-thon.
