The Wikipedian in residence project at the Cultural Center Rex lasted during the month of December. During this project, the Wikipedian in residence digitized 154 files, including as many as 21 of their publications and many clippings, which testify to cultural and historical events, debates, projects and events in their organization. 13 new articles have been written, including an article about the Cultural Center Rex, based on which we can see their dynamic history of existence.
