Event Description

Wikipedia Art+Feminism Virtual Edit-a-thon

To mark Wikipedia’s 20th anniversary, NMWA will join with its partner Wikimedia DC for the museum’s eighth 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 women artists of color, 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.

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.

Use the hashtags #ArtAndFeminism and #NowEditingAF to share about the event on social media!
