Art + Feminism is stirring up the internet yet again as they spearhead their third annual Wikipedia Edit-a-thon. The all-day event, which this year will take place on March 5, has the intention of generating coverage of women and the arts on Wikipedia and encouraging “female editorship.”
Last year’s event resulted in almost 400 new pages being added to the online encyclopedia as well as “significant improvements” to another 500 existing Wikipedia articles.
Edit-a-thons are being planned at over 100 venues across the U.S. and around the world according to the press release, “including Ashesi University Brekuso, Accra; The Banff Center; Tate Britain, London; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Museo Universitario Arte Contemporáneo, Mexico City; Yale University, New Haven; Archives Nationales, Paris; Philadelphia Museum of Art Library, Philadelphia; Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto; and the National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, DC.”
Will you be attending an edit-a-thon? Let us know @bohemianizm.
