The Faras on Wikipedia project, run by Wikimedia Polska and the National Museum in Warsaw, aims to create and improve Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons content concerning the Faras archaeological discoveries, the Faras Cathedral, and the Faras Gallery - a permanent exhibition at the NMW. We aim to cover topics such as: the archaeological discovery in Faras, the cultural history of the region, Nubian Christian culture, and the history of the artifacts.

Open Digital Projects: NMW Collections and Wikipedia

Our aim is to write key articles on these subjects in several languages. Articles are illustrated by visual material contributed to Wikimedia Commons by the National Museum in Warsaw. We hope the project will result in an accessible knowledgebase about the Faras Gallery, the exhibits at the National Museum of Sudan and the historical contexts of these unique exhibits. The project is run by Gytha, the Wikipedian-in-Residence at the National Museum, Warsaw.
