An editathon or editing marathon with a gender perspective is an activity in which several people come together to create new content on Wikipedia, figthing the content gaps of the free encyclopedia and making visible the absence of articles related to historically invisible groups and topics . No previous knowledge is necessary, we will teach you everything you need to become a professional editor!
The activity is completely free, the only requirement is to be of legal age and have a laptop. We provide the rest, including the mid-morning snack ;)
Banco Santander Foundation in coordination with Wikiesfera have thought of a sessions to create biographies of relevant Cantabrian artists who should already be in the most consulted online encyclopedia in the world.
The first meeting took place on Saturday, November 26 at the Work Café in Santander. With the team of volunteers it was possible to include in Wikipedia 5 new entries of the following artists:
Luz de Alvear
Paula Vallar Garate
Soon we will carry out more editathons! If you want to participate and help us value and make visible the most relevant figures of the Cantabrian culture in History, follow us on social networks or subscribe to our Newsletter to find out about the next call.
