Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery

On Wednesday, 8 March from 11 am to 2 pm, join us for the 2023 Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon on-site at the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery. A collaboration between the Belkin, UBC Art History Students Association, UBC Visual Arts Students Association, Department of Art History, Visual Art and Theory, and the UBC Music, Art & Architecture Library, we invite participants of all genders and expressions to join us and help balance representational imbalances at this year’s Edit-a-thon. Held each spring, art communities around the world converge to help correct Wikipedia’s gender biases and improve the content of under-represented persons on the tenth most visited site in the world by creating and editing articles about women, LGBTQ2S+, gender non-binary, people of colour, Black and Indigenous artists, curators and organizations as well as feminist and activist art movements. We’ll provide help for beginner Wikipedians, reference materials and technical support for making your edits.
