Abstract (up to 100 words)

The Wikipedian in residence in Serbia has been organized since 2014. Since then, we have implemented the project 31 times in different types of cultural institutions, lasting from one to several months. How did we manage to realize the project despite the pandemic? In what ways do we maintain relations with cultural institutions after the completion of the project? What results have we achieved, what are our greatest successes, and what are the lessons we have learned?

How will this session be beneficial for the communities in the region of Central and Eastern Europe?

We will present to other affiliates:

  1. What is Wikipedian in residence, how to cooperate with cultural institutions and how to coordinate the project?
  2. Challenges that awaited us in the realization of the project
  3. What after the end of the project?
Do you plan to pre-record a video with a presentation?
