Edit-a-thon: Disability Activism

July 20th, 2024
Washington, Washington, DC, United States
11:00am — 2:00pm EST
National Museum of Women in the Arts

Join the National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA) for our annual Art+Feminism edit-a-thon to help close information gaps related to gender, feminism, and the arts on Wikipedia. This year, to complement NMWA’s 2024 #5WomenArtists campaign, we will focus on disability activism and advocacy in the arts.

Anyone and everyone interested in learning more about editing Wikipedia, regardless of experience, gender, or background, is welcome to attend. We will provide tutorials, reference materials, internet access, and refreshments. All you need is a laptop, motivation to combat gender bias, and a belief in equal access to quality information resources.

This is a free, in-person event. Registration is required. Please bring your laptop and charger. To share about the event on social media, use the hashtags #ArtAndFeminism, #NowEditingAF, and #5WomenArtists!

This event is in partnership with Wikimedia, DC, the regional outreach organization for Wikipedia.
