2023 UofL Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon
WHO: The University of Louisville Libraries are hosting a 2023 Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon. People of all gender identities and expressions are invited to participate, particularly transgender and cisgender women.
WHAT: The Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon is an international communal updating of Wikipedia content on subjects related to art and feminism, aiming to improve Wikipedia’s historic underrepresentation of women in the encyclopedia.
WHEN: The event is scheduled for Wednesday, March 29, 2023. We will count and celebrate edits made by registered attendees from 3-7 pm. Drop-in whenever you can, no need to attend for the entire event!
WHERE: The event is hybrid: in-person at Ekstrom Library rooms W102/W103 and online via Zoom. A registration link will be available soon.
WHY: This international event is designed to improve coverage of under-represented women and the arts on Wikipedia and encourage female editorship. Editing alongside others at the same time is addictive, fun, and uplifting!
HOW: You can stay as long or as little as your schedule allows. Meet new people, learn about artists, get editing support from new and experienced Wikipedians, and help improve the world’s largest online encyclopedia.
Please see UofL’s COVID-19 policy for information about COVID protocols. Masks are not required, but are strongly encouraged and will be provided at the event. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with the Safe Space Policy.
