Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon

Saturday, March 10, 2018, noon-5 pm

Workshops: How to create a Wikipedia page

Thursday, February 15, 5:15-6:30 pm at the Belkin Art Gallery

Monday, March 5, 11 am-12 noon at Walter C. Koerner Library, Room 217

In collaboration with UBC Department of Art History, Visual Art and Theory Instructor Christine D’Onofrio and concurrent with Art+Feminism events worldwide, the Belkin Art Gallery invites participants of all genders and expressions to join in a Wikipedia Edit-a-thon. Annually each March, art and feminist communities around the world converge to correct Wikipedia’s gendered biases and bolster the representation of female-identified and non-binary persons indexed within the ubiquitous online resource.

Join us on Saturday, March 10 to create and edit Wikipedia articles about female-identified and non-binary artists, feminist art movements and scholarship. We will provide help for beginner Wikipedians, reference materials, childcare and refreshments. Bring your own laptop, power cord and ideas for entries that need updating or creation.

Before the Edit-a-thon, join us at a How-To Workshop for research and preparation help:
