The third annual Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon will happen in NYC on Saturday, March 5th. The all-day event is one of nearly 150 that will take place worldwide. This initiative aims to generate coverage of women and the arts on Wikipedia and encourage female editorship. In 2015, over 1500 participants at more than 75 events around the world created nearly 400 new pages and edited 500 existing articles. The event is open to the public and everyone is welcome to participate.
The day will include a panel discussion, tutorials for the beginner Wikipedian, ongoing editing support, reference materials, childcare, and refreshments. The organizers advise participants to bring a laptop, power cord, and ideas for entries. (They also encourage the “editing-averse” to stop by to show their support!)
