Wikipedia Edit-a-thon 2020: Women Artists of Latin America
Improve Wikipedia articles about Latin American women artists.
In honor of Women’s History Month, NMWA will host its 7th annual Art+Feminism edit-a-thon focused on improving Wikipedia entries related to notable women artists and art world figures. This year’s event will focus on women artists of Latin America.
Held in collaboration with Wikipedia Edit-a-thons across the city at the libraries of the National Gallery of Art, the Smithsonian American Art Museum and the Hirshhorn Museum, NMWA’s edit-a-thon also commemorates the adoption of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in 1920, which granted women the right to vote.
This event is part of a global initiative to help improve Wikipedia’s gender imbalance. In 2019, more than 3,800 Art+Feminism participants created or improved 21,000 Wikipedia pages. Keep the movement alive in 2020!
No experience necessary—just bring a laptop, 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.
