Event Description
Wikipedia’s content and community skews male, creating significant gaps in an increasingly important repository of shared knowledge. We invite you to address this absence in a half-day, communal updating of Wikipedia’s entries related to art and feminism. There will be tutorials for the beginner Wikipedian, digital and print materials to reference and light refreshments provided. Bring your own laptop, power cord and ideas for entries that need updating or creation. Public computers are available, but limited. Attendees are encouraged to edit any entry of interest related to art, feminism, gender studies and LGBTQ issues.
