Event Details


As part of the Women’s History Month, we are excited to invite you to Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thons taking place worldwide throughout the month of March. Wikipedia is one of the most widely used community platforms to seek and produce knowledge. This campaign seeks to bridge the gender gap on Wikipedia, where women make up less than 10% of them. Further, even in terms of content, only 20% of all biographies on Wikipedia are about women. Art+Feminism seeks to challenge this situation by improving coverage of  cis and transgender women, non-binary folks, feminism and the arts on Wikipedia. From coffee shops and community centers to the largest museums and universities in the world, Art+Feminism is a do-it-yourself and do-it-with-others campaign teaching people of all gender identities and expressions to edit Wikipedia. In India, the campaign is in its fourth year.

About Jaipur Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon

The City Palace in Jaipur was built between 1729 and 1732 under the reign of Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II . The palace is the residence of the royal family of Jaipur, a centre of patronage of arts and learning, an important place for worship and today, houses a museum that displays Maharaja Sawai Man Singh II Museum’s collection. The Edit-a-thon will partake of the museum’s heritage and focus on its collection to improve information about women, their depiction, objects, and the lives of women at the Jaipur court.
