MEditerranean RIm WIkiart Project (MERIWIP)

Become a Wikiartist
MERIWIP invites people living in the countries that surround the Mediterranean Sea to be wikiartists by collaborating in creating a web-enabled peer-produced artwork.

Anyone from the 21 Mediterranean Rim countries (Spain, France, Monaco, Malta, Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Montenegro, Albania, Greece, Turkey, Syria, Cyprus, Lebanon, Israel, Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, and Morocco) can become a wikiartist by participating in MERIWIP.

Interaction Towards Multiform Unity
MERIWIP will facilitate interaction between people living in the Med Rim countries to promote good will and unity – not the unity of the uniform, but multiform unity in which the distinctive culture of each country is honored. Marriage is an archetype of multiform unity, a loving unification that respects diversity. At its best, it creates a vibrant harmony between two singular people of different sexes, life experiences, cognitive styles, and viewpoints. It is a model for bringing peaceful relationships between to the rich variety of peoples and nations surrounding the Sea.

This wikiart project is inspired by YASMIN’s call for projects to advance communication, collaboration, and cooperation between these 21 countries. YASMIN is an Internet community that promotes art-science-technology interactions around the Mediterranean Rim.
