Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit A Thon says
In a 2011 survey, the Wikimedia Foundation found that less than 10% of its contributors identify as female, while only 15% of the English Wikipedia’s biographies are about women. As part of the Art + Feminism global initiative to get more content related to women in the arts on the world’s largest online encyclopedia, join us for a communal updating of Wikipedia entries on notable Canadian women, trans and/or gender non-conforming artists, scholars and historians in art, craft and design.

Our Edit-a-thon kicks off at 11:00 am with a conversation on contemporary feminism, ceramics, and community featuring artists Janet Macpherson and Helen Cho, and moderated by curator Karine Tsoumis. Following the discussion, participants are encouraged to form breakout groups and spend the afternoon ensuring a gender inclusive history within Wikipedia’s vast database.

Bring your laptop, power cord, and ideas for entries that need updating or creation. No Wikipedia editing experience required—a workshop for newcomers will be provided as well as one-on-one coaching. People of all gender identities and expressions are welcomed to attend.

In partnership with Art+Feminism and OCAD University.

FREE with registration! Onsite child programming available for ages 4 and up with pre-registration.
