The Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon @ CMU is an all-day, walk-in event. Prior knowledge of how to edit and create Wikipedia articles is not required!

Take part in this free edit-a-thon featuring introductory tutorials for the beginner Wikipedian, reference materials, and refreshments. Our specific focus will be adding and enhancing articles on women and female-identified artists working at the intersection of art + technology (though no one will be discouraged from researching women working in other art-related fields).

People of all gender identities and expressions, particularly transgender, cisgender, and gender nonconforming women, are invited to participate. Please ask your fellow attendees for their pronouns of choice!

+ BYOLaptop and ideas for Wikipedia entries that need to be added or updated. Or feel free to add to the Wikipedia Meetup page if you already know how.

+ If you aren’t interested in making articles, come collaborate on the research end.

[ABOUT Art+Feminism]
Art+Feminism is a rhizomatic campaign dedicated to introducing more women in the arts into Wikipedia, and to empower women to edit the internet’s largest encyclopedia. Wikipedia’s gender trouble is well-documented. Wikimedia’s 2013 study The Wikipedia Gender Gap Revisited revealed that 84% of Wikipedia’s editors were male. The Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon seeks to encourage more women to contribute and correct the bias inherent in the lack of female participation.

++ FYI ++ An additional Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon event will take place on March 5th at the Frick Fine Arts Library, University of Pittsburgh campus from 10am – 3pm. For more information, visit:

The Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry strives to create a welcoming and inclusive community. Our main space is wheelchair-accessible, and Carnegie Mellon’s Office of Disability Resources further assists us with ensuring physical and programmatic access. For more information on our disability services, contact at: access [at] andrew [dot] cmu [dot] edu.

This event is made possible through support from the Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry, the Carnegie Mellon University College of Fine Arts, and the Carnegie Mellon University School of Art.
