Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon

March 9th, 2024
Melbourne, Australia
10:30am — 2:00pm EST
Women's Art Register

Celebrate 2024 International Women’s Day by helping Yarra Libraries and the Women’s Art Register close the gender gap in Wikipedia articles and editors in our annual Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon.

As the largest general reference work on the internet, Wikipedia is hugely popular. But less than 20% of biographies on Wikipedia are about women. The Women’s Art Register works to improve coverage about women artists both online and with our Hard Copy Archive at Richmond Library.

Join us to amplify the voices of Australian women artists and designers and #breakthebias
