ART + FEMINISM

Art+Feminism is a campaign to improve coverage of women and the arts on Wikipedia. We encourage the editing and creation of Wikipedia entries, especially to improve coverage of women and the arts.

The Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon is an all-day, walk-in event. Prior knowledge of how to edit and create Wikipedia articles is not required!

Anyone interested in learning more about women in the arts or how to edit Wikipedia, regardless of experience, gender, or background, is encouraged to attend.  Wikipedia tutorials will be provided for beginners and art experts will be around to give research and citation advice. Contributors should bring their laptops and chargers.
