2021 Art+Feminism Virtual Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon

March 24th, 2021
Columbus, Online
12:00pm — 4:00pm EST
Wexner Center for the Arts, the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum, and The Ohio State University Libraries

Join the Wexner Center for the Arts, The Ohio State University Libraries, and the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum for the third annual Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon.

Despite its wide reach, Wikipedia suffers from a severe gender gap: the online encyclopedia has fewer and less extensive articles about women and queer artists. This inclusive event is dedicated to improving coverage of gender, feminism, and the arts on Wikipedia. On March 24, we invite you to edit Wikipedia throughout the day and contribute to closing the information gap online. No experience necessary!

Event organizers will be available to answer questions and assist editors in an open Zoom meeting from noon – 4 p.m. Before the event, participants are encouraged to first create a Wikipedia account, log into the dashboard, and register for our open zoom meeting.

Please continue to check the event page for additional updates and editing resources.
