National Museum of Women in the Arts Virtual Wikipedia Edit-a-thon: Black Artists Matter
- Tuesday, August 11, 2020
Time: 10am –12:30pm
- VIRTUAL EVENT
NMWA will host its first all-virtual Art+Feminism edit-a-thon focused on improving Wikipedia entries related to notable women artists and art world figures. We will work to enrich the representation of all women artists, with an emphasis on women of African descent whose work is included in NMWA's collection.
This event is part of a global initiative to help right Wikipedia’s gender imbalance. In 2019, at least 4,360 Art+Feminism participants created or enhanced over 31,500 Wikipedia pages.
No experience necessary—just be ready with your computer, a motivation to combat gender bias, and a belief in equal access to quality information resources. People of all gender identities and expressions are invited to participate.
