If you know your Gucci from your Pucci, are proficient in French and are looking to make contacts within the fashion world in Paris, this may just be the event for you.
Not only will you learn how to write on Wikipedia, editathons are also a great way to meet like-minded people from all corners of the fashion sector and there will be plenty of networking opportunities during the breakfast, lunch and drinks after.
The edit-a-thon will take place in the beautiful library of Les Arts Décoratifs © Les Arts Décoratifs, Paris
You can also participate in a tour of the museum’s latest fashion exhibition Dries Van Noten – Inspirations. The exhibition perfectly complements the theme of the day ‘Fashion and Craftsmanship’, as Dries Van Noten is known for his intricate detailing.
Participating in the fashion editathon is entirely free. You can register via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that an introduction to writing on Wikipedia will take place at Les Arts Décoratifs on 13 March from 16:00-18:00. The working language for both days is French. You can find more information on the website of Les Arts Décoratifs.
