This action, addressed to instructors and students from various university departments (theater studies, sociology, history, folklore etc.), fashion and costume museum curators, clothing historians, folklorists, “fashion bloggers” and anyone interested in participating, aims to enrich the Greek Wikipedia – and potentially the Anglophone Wikipedia – with entries relating to Greek local costumes and Greek fashion during the course of time. The event will also take place with the participation and supervision of members of the Greek Wikipedia.
More specifically, participants will be invited to write new entries or edit older ones. During the Marathon, participants will have the opportunity to meet personalities from the fields of fashion and costume design, as well as curators of the PFF, and discuss with them about the museum and its collections. In addition, there will be a brief presentation about Museum’s collections and Europeana Fashion, as well as training in writing and formatting techniques in Wikipedia.

Internet access will be provided by a Wi-Fi network, participants should only have with them their laptop or any other portable device. Anyone who will not manage to register their entry during that day or has to leave before the end of the program, can complete the writing and uploading in Wikipedia at another time.
Participants will be invited to a special tour of the museum permanent collectionsin Nafplio, and they will receive a 10% discount on any purchases they make in the museum shop.

On 5 and 6 February, and one more time at the premises of Harokopio University, a seminary will be held about Wikipedia and the methodology on writing entries, in relation with participation in the PFF ESPA program afore mentioned.
