Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon 🌐

March 30, 2023 @ 10:00 am 4:00 pm

Thursday 30 March
10:00 am–4:00 pm

Join us as we host our second annual Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon! We’ll be turning our lobby into Wikipedia central, complete with computer workstations and a comfy zine zone where you can read zines about Wikipedia and encounter subjects and voices outside the mainstream.

Art + Feminisim Wikipedia Edit-a-thon

This event is part of a global initiative to close information gaps related to gender, feminism, and the arts. The focus of our work will be on women, LGBTQIA+, and racialized artists who have exhibited at the Owens or whose work is in our permanent collection.

Edits to Wikipedia make meaningful and immediate change, helping to shape the world’s largest reference and one of the most-visited sites on the Internet. Anyone can write and edit articles in Wikipedia and there are many ways to participate in the Edit-a-thon, from smaller actions like building bibliographies and adding category tags to help make articles more findable, to bigger tasks, such as expanding an article or even starting your own!

We will provide training and support for new Wikipedians. We’ll also have a list of suggested articles to work on and reference materials to get you started. You can bring your own laptop or use one of ours.

It’s helpful to create a Wikipedia account ahead of time, but we can help you do this too! You may also want to review this handy Quick Guide for Editing on Wikipedia developed by Art+Feminism.

We welcome people of all gender identities and expressions. By attending this event you agree to uphold the Art+Feminism Safe, Brave Space Policy.

Masks are required at the Owens and in all buildings at Mount Allison University
