Madison Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon

Madison Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon

Bubbler, Central Library
03/11/2017
2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Wikimedia’s gender trouble is well-documented. In a 2011 survey, the Wikimedia Foundation found that less than 10% of its contributors identify as female. While the reasons for the gender gap are up for debate, the practical effect of this disparity, however, is not. Content is skewed by the uneven gender participation. This represents an alarming absence in an increasingly important repository of shared knowledge.

Let’s change that! Attendees are encouraged to edit any entry of interest related to arts, feminism, gender studies, and LGBTQ issues. All are welcome who care about the representation of all genders in Wikipedia’s content and among its contributors.

We will provide tutorials for the beginner Wikipedian, reference materials, and laptops. Bring your own laptop if you have one and any ideas for entries that need updating or creation. For the editing-averse, we urge you to stop by to show your support, learn more about this project, and eat pizza with us.

Childcare and refreshments will be provided.

Sign in at our meetup (or we'll help you do this at the event): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Meetup/Madison/ArtAndFeminism_2017

For more information visit: artandfeminism.org

The Madison A+F Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon is hosted by The ArtWrite Collective and Madison Public Library. Contact theartwritecollective@gmail.com with questions or to let us know that you’d like to volunteer at this event!
