ART+FEMINISM WIKIPEDIA EDIT-A-THON
March 11, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pmFree and open to the public
Art+Feminism is a rhizomatic campaign to improve coverage of women and the arts on Wikipedia, and to encourage female editorship. Wikipedia’s gender trouble is well documented. In a 2011 survey, Wikimedia found that less than 13% of its contributors are female. Content is skewed by the lack of female participation. Many articles on notable women in history and art are absent on Wikipedia. We invite people of all gender identities and expressions to attend this in-person, communal updating of Wikipedia’s entries on art and feminism. Bring snacks, sip coffee and edit herstory. No Wikipedia editing experience necessary. Workshops will be provided for Wikipedia newcomers.
