An edit-a-thon 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!

This second edit-a-thon took place at Santemar hotel in Santander on May 27th, and was intended to collect in Wikipedia the heritage of Cantabria that is on the Red list, that is, that is at serious risk of destruction, disappearance or irreversible loss. With its inclusion in Wikipedia we will give it visibility and record its existence in the most consulted online encyclopedia in the world.


The first editathon 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

Vicky Uslé

Paula Vallar Garate

Sara Ontañón

Maria Gorbeña
