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?

Is our first A + F editathon in Italy, so this time is one editathon, but we hope will become an annual event focused on female artists

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.

We created the wiki page, the dashboard and Facebook event, writing on the comunity portal and asking wikipedians to give us a hand (by reporting wikipedians that might be interested to partecipate, drawing up lists, checking for notability, begining online wikifacilitators).

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

Our WikiDonne team has a group of 3-4 expert wikipedians that lead all events, helping partecipants to realize the notability criteria (wich is the most controversial and not easy to understand), to upload images on Commons etc.

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

Often our partecipants are newbies, people who has any experience. Our goal is to make them begin confidential, creating constancy on working on Wikipedia. After a brief training lesson , we will support them during the event for writing entries. We will provide bibliographic materials for the event.

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

Periodically we organize courses and events also in the Library of University of Salerno, our istitution.

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

We will get involved local associations and institutions to repeat this event every month of March.


How will you know if the project is successful and you've met your goals? Please include the following targets:

  1. Number of events: 1
  2. Number of participants: 20
  3. Number of new editors: 15
  4. Number of articles created or improved: 10
  5. Number of repeat participants (for projects that include a series of events): 0
