  • What?: The Bridges across Cultures contest is an editing contest organized by different Wikimedia affiliates with the goal to promote cultural exchange between three regions of the world: Latin America, Russia and the Middle East & North Africa (MENA). Its third edition will be organized in December 2019.

    • Literature

  • Why?: The goal of the contest is to promote cultural exchange between different regions of the world. Although Wikipedia has been an unique opportunity to expand the access to knowledge from every corner of the world, there is still a difference in the quality of articles and a bias towards Western European and North American content. We expect this contest can help to promote cooperation across the world and increase the access to content with a global perspective.
