Edit-a-thon Vorst December 2017
In December 2017 an edit-a-thon was organised in the library BLI:B in Vorst/Forest.
The goal of the edit-a-thon is to write articles about Vorst/Forest and/or dance in Wikipedia, and to increase the number of articles about these subjects and closer the Belgiumgap. Also taking photos and uploading them is welcome.
History and background
In 2017 multiple edit-a-thons have been organised in Brussels around dance and/or Brussels. During the Brussels writing weeks 2017 in April two sessions were organised around dance. With the Wikify het Theaterfestival! edit-a-thons in August-September 10 writing sessions were organised around dance. The focus for dance is because Brussels is considered to be a capital of dance in the world and the limited presence of this topic on Wikipedia.
