CitizenHeritage promotes participative approaches to support citizen science and citizen participation in cultural heritage, tested and performed in a series of citizen engagement events throughout 2021-2023.
On 17 March 2023, EFHA European Fashion Heritage Association organized a participatory activity on the theme of “Enriching textile heritage“. This event was realized in collaboration with the Italian Wikimedia Chapter and the Crafted project.
During the workshop, the students of the Department of Design of the University of Florence were engaged in adding new voices in Wikipedia about textile heritage, using the collections and the expertise of the Museo del Tessuto di Prato.
This edit-a-thon contributed more than 30 new voices about textile heritage on Wikimedia.
