Art + Feminism: Wikipedia Edit-a-thon


Sunday, October 27, 12 PM–5 PM
New Museum Sky Room
235 Bowery, New York, NY 


Join us in the Sky Room for an afternoon of workshops, readings, and talks by artists and scholars presented on the occasion of a Wiki Edit-a-thon dedicated to expanding the Wikipedia pages for feminist figures across the gender spectrum—trans, nonbinary, gender nonconforming, and cis. Art + Feminism seeks to address structural imbalances on Wikipedia, the internet’s largest and most globally used free encyclopedia, where the majority of editors are cis and male. Art + Feminism provides tools and training for new Wikipedia editors, and organizes gatherings that support this work.

 

We invite people of all gender identities and expressions to bring a laptop and join us for an afternoon of public programs and a work session devoted to updating Wikipedia pages! Wikipedia training will be provided throughout the day. 





NOTE: Please bring your own laptop to the event if you wish to participate fully.
