What is an Edit-a-thon?
An Edit-a-thon is a community-organized event that aims to teach folks how to edit, update, and add articles on Wikipedia. A 2011 study found that fewer than 10% of contributors to Wikipedia identify as women. Perhaps partly as a result of this gender gap, Wikipedia has fewer and less extensive articles on women. Art+Feminism is a campaign to improve coverage of cis and transgender women, feminism and the arts on Wikipedia.
Join us for a free communal updating of Wikipedia entries on subjects related to art and feminism. We will provide tutorials for the beginner Wikipedian, reference materials, and food! People of all gender identities and expressions are invited to participate. Don’t forget to bring your laptop and power cord! FREE.
This Wikipedia Edit-a-thon is made possible through the support of Art+Feminism and the Wikimedia Foundation.
