Free! Everyone welcome! No previous experience required!

Less than 10% of Wikipedia articles are edited by women. While the reason for the gender gap is uncertain, it is real, and it needs to change. Join us for a communal updating of Wikipedia entries on subjects related to art and feminism.

We will provide tutorials for the beginner Wikipedian (tutorials will be screened from 6:00 to 6:30), reference materials, laptops (in case demand is high, please consider bringing your own), childcare*, and refreshments. Bring your laptop, power cord, and ideas for entries that need updating or creation.

People of all gender identities and expressions are invited to participate.

Childcare will be provided in the form of art programming.

For more information about Art + Feminism, please see their wikipedia page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Art%2BFeminism
