Hi everyone, I'm Ivana Madžarević, Project and Community Manager of Wikimedia Serbia <https://rs.wikimedia.org/wiki/%D0%93%D0%BB%D0%B0%D0%B2%D0%BD%D0%B0_%D1%81%D1%82%D1%80%D0%B0%D0%BD%D0%B0>. I'm reaching out to you hoping that you will join organizing World Mime Day Wiki edit-a-thon. It's an international event that will be held in several countries (so far confirmed) around the world on 22nd of March.
The idea came up in cooperation of Wikimedia Serbia and Serbian actor Marko Stojanović (also president of World Mime Organisation <http://www.worldmime.org/>). We wanted to enrich Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons with relevant articles and photos of mime artists, theaters, festivals, history etc. Mr Stojanović is very well connected with institutions who can provide literature, photo materials and maybe even a venue for the edit-a-thon. It would have much more impact if it's organized in several countries on the same date - similar like Art&Feminism edit-a-thons. Organizing such an event will help developing strong relations between chapters and building partnerships with relevant institutions through networking. I've created meta page <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/World_Mime_Day_Wiki_edit-a-thon#Time_plan> and I'm asking you to join and add information about your chapter if you're willing to organize it. So far, several countries confirmed their interest. Wikimedians from Bulgaria, Armenia, Macedonia and Georgia will organize it and some of them have already contacted institutions who can help with sources and photos. Event in Serbia will probably be organized at Singidunum faculty <http://eng.singidunum.ac.rs/> in Belgrade. Mr Stojanović is preparing photos that will be released and used for illustrating Wikipedia articles. Feel free to contact me if you need any assistance or help. Also, if you have any suggestion or comment, do share them.
