Description :

Created as a continuity of MedinaPedia Tunis, MedinaPedia Sfax is a project that aims to ameliorate the coverage of the Medina of Sfax (the old town of Sfax) in Wikimedia projects (mainly Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons). In this presentation, we are going to present MedinaPedia Sfax, the obstacles we faced concerning partnerships building and references collection, and the volunteers recruitement strategy. Also, we will present what we have done so far in the frame of the project and talk about what we need as support from the international community (translation, funds, etc).
