10th Europeana Fashion Edit-a-thon organised by Athens' Peloponnesian Folklore Foundation
The Peloponnesian Folklore Foundation, along with PostScriptum, the company which implements the ESPA program “The PFF in the digital era”, organized the tenth Europeana Fashion Edit-a-thon. The event was organized in tandem with wikipedians, the company PostScriptum, who works with the foundation on the programme “The Peloponnesian Folklore Foundation in the digital era” and the Euroepana Fashion project. The theme of the edit-a-thon, with rich materials from Greece's costume tradition, inspired fashion designers, folklore experts, costume designers, fashion historians and museologists to engage and enrich Wikipedia with entries relevant to the subject. The event took place on Saturday, February 7th at Harokopion University, which was an excellent host. Its students responded with great interest and compiled exceptional articles on the world’s free encyclopedia.
