SCHEDULE:

Registration at 10:00 AM/Training sessions at 10:30 AM and 1:30 PM/Panel at 6:00 PM

Join us for the sixth annual (and our fourth!) Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon, a global project improving content on cis and trans women, the arts, and feminism on Wikipedia.

The gender gap on Wikipedia is no secret. In 2011, The Wikimedia Foundation found that less than 10% of editors on the platform were women. When we’re not represented in the writing and editing of the stories and records of people like us, the content gets messed up. The stories get mistold. We lose out on the real history. That’s why we’re here: to change it.

This year, Art+Feminism is expanding their project focus to include correcting and expanding the histories of gender non-binary artists and activists on Wikipedia.

We will provide tutorials for the beginner Wikipedian, reference materials, and refreshments, and invite people of all gender identities and expressions to participate, particularly transgender and cisgender women. We hope you’ll also join us in the evening for a panel discussion on the intersection of art, feminism, technology, and history.

Registration is encouraged.

 

Please BYO laptop!
