Join us in the multipurpose lecture hall, in the new Library building of the Athens School of Fine Arts, to participate in this Edit-a-thon co-organized by the Onassis Cultural Centre with the Open Technologies Alliance – GFOSS and the Athens School of Fine Arts.

Researchers from the Athens School of Fine Arts, along with editors from the Wikimedia Community User Group Greece, will be at your side, eager to support you in the process.

During the workshop, starting with Digital and Hybrid arts, you will learn how to write and edit Wikipedia articles, tour the new Library building and of course, meet people sharing the same interests. The terms and articles created during the day, will be included in the live projection featured in the Hybrids exhibition at the Onassis Cultural Centre.

This Hybrid arts “edit-a-thon” –as Wikipedia content building events are usually called– will begin on December 17th, to be followed by future events within the next year.

The only thing you are going to need in order to participate, is to bring your laptop.
