Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon 2019
Copresented with East of Borneo
This Wikipedia edit-a-thon is focused on Women+Film+Media. Wikipedia training sessions for beginners will take place at noon and 3 p.m.—all you need is a laptop. Also, women artists and filmmakers are invited to stop by and have their portraits taken for Wikimedia Commons in a free photo booth.
Art + Feminism is a global do-it-yourself campaign to combat gender bias and improve the coverage of cis and transgender women, feminism, and the arts on Wikipedia. Anyone can edit Wikipedia but not everyone does: only about 15% of Wikipedia editors are female, and this imbalance is reflected in the content. Bring your laptop and learn to create and edit Wikipedia articles at this annual worldwide edit-a-thon to close the gender gap. Beginners are welcome, and people of all gender expressions and identities are encouraged to attend.
