Code4Culture Hackathon Korca


(Silva Arapi) #1

Members of the Wikimedia Community User Group Albania are organizing this weekend a Code4Culture Hackathon which will take place in the city of Korca in Albania.

This is one of the first activities of Code4Herritage Hackathons that we are planning to host, which is being organized in close collaboration with Archaeological Museum of Korca, an important GLAM institution in the country.

During the event the organizers will mentor approximately 20 youngsters and museum personnel to edit and create articles about the monuments of culture in Albania and Korca city. In addition, the QR Pedia project will be presented as a solution for the museum too.

Our goals for this event are to:

  • Recruit new editors outside Tirana, Albania.

  • Add or improve articles related to cultural heritage of Albania.

  • Empower collaboration with GLAM institutions in Albania.

We will keep you posted in our social media channels and also share the results of the event with a blog post in Open Labs website.
