The goal of the project (2016-2017) is to collect bibliography, source material, photo and audiovisual material on authentic folklore of the region, make it available on Wikimedia Commons – and use it for better coverage of related articles on Wikipedia (in English and relevant local languages). The main focus is on regional costume, and folk arts and crafts (see the Articles section). Teams consisting of Wikipedians, ethnographers from the National Museum of Ethnography, and volunteers will travel to several Central European destinations in order to document folk culture in Wikipedias and Wikimedia Commons. All team members will also write, expand and illustrate a predefined set of related articles on related language versions of Wikipedia. The project has been made possible thanks to a Project and Event Grant from the Wikimedia Foundation.
