Please join our third annual Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon on Saturday, March 7 and help us improve representation of women artists on Wikipedia!

The day will kick-off at noon with a conversation between two Brooklyn-based artists, Jaishri Abichandani and Jean Shin, exploring questions around the role of feminism and activism in their art practice. The conversation will be moderated by Jane DeBevoise, Chair of the Board of Asia Art Archive in New York and Hong Kong.  Following this discussion, Megan O’Hearn of Art + Feminism will lead an Introduction to Editing Wikipedia training session for new editors.

Organized by Asia Art Archive in America and Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Division of Art, Prints and Photographs of the New York Public Library and in collaboration with Asia Art Archive in Hong Kong, this event brings together participants to discuss, create, share, and improve Wikipedia articles about women artists and makers in and from Asia.

Aligned with Art+Feminism—“a campaign improving coverage of cis and transgender women, non-binary folks, feminism, and the arts on Wikipedia”—this edit-a-thon is part of an ongoing effort to contribute to discussions about the representation of art and visual culture by women in and of Asia on open-source knowledge platforms. Books and research materials—as well as coffee, tea, and refreshments—will be provided. No prior Wikipedia editing experience is required!

Preparation:
1. If you don’t already have one, create a Wikipedia account.
2. Enroll as an editor on our Event Dashboard.
3. Bring ideas for creating or improving articles on Wikipedia. If you are looking for inspiration, you may start with the suggestions compiled by the AAA-A/NYPL team. You can find them on our dashboard.
