Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences organizes Wikithon to improve visibility of marginal groups

The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences of Maastricht University (FASoS) is organizing a so-called Wikithon to improve the visibility of certain, marginalized and less well-known groups on Wikipedia. By translating pages that are currently only available in Dutch into English, making them accessible to a wider audience. Or by creating new pages about regional topics/people that are not yet included in Wikipedia. For example about Suchan Kinoshita (a German-Japanese artist), Vera van Hasselt (sculptress), but also, for example, about buildings in Maastricht, such as the Hof van Tilly. This in the context of International Women's Day on March 8, 2022.
