The goal of all Europeana Fashion edit-a-thons is to improve and make fashion information on Wikipedia better and more visible, both in English and other language versions of Wikipedia. The fashion edit-a-thon at MoMu will focus on the theme Belgian fashion. Naturally, participants may write on other fashion topics as well. Students, curators, researchers, fashion bloggers and other fashion enthusiasts are more than welcome. Experience with editing Wikipedia articles is not required, as experienced Wikipedians will be present to guide and assist the participants. All you need to bring is your laptop and your enthusiasm. Lunch and snacks will be provided as well as a tour through the newly opened exhibition 50 Years Fashion Department, on the history of the Antwerp fashion academy. So when?
