In a 2011 survey, the Wikimedia Foundation found that less than 10 percent of its contributors identify as female. This lack of female participation has led to an alarming dearth of content about women and art in the world’s most popular online research tool. Want to do something about it? Then this Art+Feminism Edit-a-thon is for you! Designed to will provide everything the beginning Wikipedian needs to get in, get editing, and make positive changes! Since 2014, over 280 Art+Feminism Edit-a-thons have taken place across the work, creating and improving an estimated 4,600 articles. Join us and be a part of this movement for positive change. Register today.

Stabley (Library) 201/210.
A note about today’s program: We’ve tried to design a structured event that provides the necessary skills to edit Wikipedia, but is flexible enough to allow people to drop in when they can and still get their fingers on the keyboard. Can’t make one of the two structured programs? No Worries! We’ll have on-going workstations and wandering tutors. Drop in when you can.
With funding from the Wikimedia Foundation, this event is sponsored by IUP Libraries, Women’s and Gender Studies, Theatre and Dance department, and the Center for Digital Humanities and Culture.
