An ARLIS/UK & Ireland and University of the Arts London event
Anyone is welcome to attend
Wikipedia is the 5th most visited website in the world.
80% of its global content is written by white men from Europe and North America.
Tired of the internet reflecting the same bias as society?
Help us to change it.
It’s March, so it’s time for our annual Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon!
A chance to contribute to updating Wikipedia entries on subjects related to Art, Feminism, Gender + The Non-Binary.
We will particularly be focusing on updating entries on female identifying artists of colour.
This year we’ll be doing it remotely, which means you can attend our launch event online on Collaborate (15 March, 1pm)– to get registered and see a quick demo on how to edit Wikipedia, then take the next two weeks to do some edits at your own convenience, from home. Whatever you can do helps! We’ll also supply learning materials to help with the process, and have suggestions ready of pages you could edit.
To register for the launch event please email Alex Duncan: firstname.lastname@example.org.
