The ECUAD Library invites you to be part of our annual Art+Feminism Wikipedia edit-a-thon!

Join us in listening to a panel of speakers discuss feminist and Indigenous citation practices (TBA), and participating in some communal Wikipedia editing. As in the past years, we continue to address the gaps in information and within the editing community of the Wikiverse to center the work of women, feminist, Indigenous, queer, non-binary, and immigrant art and artists. This year, we will be working together on the creation and expansion of pages for Vancouver artists who are under-represented on Wikipedia.

We will provide tutorials for the beginner Wikipedian, as well as direction on where to get started. Feel free to bring your own art + feminism related wikipedia editing project ideas, or partake in a collective effort towards editing pages for local artist(s)!
