Newcomb College Institute says
The Newcomb Archives and the Newcomb Art Museum of Tulane University are hosting New Orleans' second annual Art+Feminism Editathon on Friday, March 4th!

Art+Feminism is an international campaign to improve coverage of women and the arts on Wikipedia. On March 4th, 5th, and 6th, art galleries, museums, libraries, and archives around the world will host edit-a-thons in honor of International Women's Day weekend.

Activities will include new editor training and brief tours of the Newcomb Art Museum. Coffee and snacks will be provided! Happy hour to follow, location TBD.

RSVP on the Wikipedia event page [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Meetup/New_Orleans/ArtAndFeminism_2016/Newcomb_Archives_and_Newcomb_Art_Museum] by adding your name to the list of attendees (see this tutorial to create a Wiki User page before the event: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/e/ee/How_to_create_a_userpage.pdf)

More info:
The purpose of Art + Feminism is to encourage women, transgender and non-binary individuals, and other gender minorities to contribute to Wikipedia. Less than 10% of Wikipedia editors identify as female; even fewer identify as transgender or non-binary. This represents an alarming absence in an increasingly important repository of shared knowledge. Therefore we invite people of all gender identities and expressions, particularly transgender, cisgender, and gender nonconforming women, to address this absence by attending an in-person, communal updating of Wikipedia’s entries on art and feminism.
