Description:

Drop-in to the Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon. You will learn to edit, update, and add articles to Wikipedia. Anyone and everyone interested in learning more about editing and improving Wikipedia, regardless of experience, gender, or background, is welcome to attend.

Art+Feminism is an international initiative that aims to improve representation of cis and trans women, gender non-binary people, the arts, and feminism on Wikipedia by encouraging people of all gender expressions to start editing. Since 2014, over 14,000 people at more than 1,100 events around the world have participated in Art+Feminism edit-a-thons, resulting in the creation and improvement of more than 58,000 articles on Wikipedia.

Introductory tutorials, reference materials, and refreshments will be provided. Participants are encouraged to create a Wikipedia account before the event. Bring your own laptop and get ready to edit.

This is the 4th annual Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon organized by undergraduate students in the Department of Art History.
