MassArt Art and Activism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon 2021

Wikimedia’s gender trouble is well-documented. In 2011, less than 10% of its contributors identified as female. The content for this increasingly important repository of shared knowledge is skewed by this disparity. Let’s change that. Join us for a virtual training and communal updating of Wikipedia entries on subjects related to art and feminism, sponsored by the Morton R. Godine Library and the MassArt Art Museum (MAAM). We will provide tutorials and access to online reference materials. This event is designed to train more women to be editors, though all gender identities are welcome.

Participants will need to select a pseudonym for their username and create an account in advance of the training. Please read the username guidelines and carefully choose what personal information you share.
