Workshop in Seifhennersdorf; WikiTown Přibyslav
Czech Wikipedians in Seifhennersdorf
An international workshop of Wikipedians in Seifhennersdorf (Wikipedians in Seifhennersdorf) was attended by 4 Czech Wikipedians. They visited the German Museum of Damask and Terrycloth (Deutsches Damast- und Frottiermuseum) in Großschönau and took not only pictures but also captured the sounds of the loom, a weavers' song and pronunciation of local towns in the "Oberlausitzer Mundart" dialect.
Wikimedia Czech Republic organized the first massive edit-a-thon, called WikiTown Přibyslav, which concentrated on improving various articles on the topic of the town of Přibyslav. The workshop was inspired by similar activities in other countries of Europe. We cooperated with both museums in the town: The Municipal Museum provided us with historical photographs about the town and its citizens (commons:Category:Městské muzeum Přibyslav) but we also documented the exhibitions at the Firefighter Museum of the Firefighter Movement centre.
