ASU Library is co-sponsoring the wikipedia edit-a-thon in conjunction with Open Education Week, emphasizing OER or open education resources like Wikipedia. We will offer group training sessions at 1pm, 3pm and 5pm. If you arrive at another time, one of us will help train you individually. Students, faculty, researchers, staff, and the community are all welcome!
The 2nd Annual Art + Feminism Wikipedia edit-a-thon is a joint event sponsored by the School of Art, and ASU Library, as part of the Art+Feminism DIY campaign to improve coverage on feminism and the arts on Wikipedia, and also encourage female editorship.
Attendees will be introduced to editing Wikipedia pages, and guided on editing women and art Wikipedia entries, either updating a current Wikipedia page, or adding a new Wikipedia entry. You don’t need to be an expert, all you need is an interest and willingness to share your knowledge. The event will be catered, and computers will be provided.
RSVP to attend - all levels of expertise are welcome.

Please join us for a fun, inclusive, one-day event that brings together diverse communities to create and improve Wikipedia articles related to women in the arts. Despite its wide reach, Wikipedia suffers from a severe gender imbalance: since most editors are men, articles conform to men's interests and perspectives. In an effort to change this, we are gathering diverse women and allies together to celebrate women's cultural achievements.
No Wikipedia editing experience necessary; tutoring will be provided for Wikipedia newcomers as needed throughout the event.
Light refreshments will be served.
