Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon

Join the Wexner Center for the Arts, University Libraries and the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum for the third annual Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon.
   
Despite its wide reach, Wikipedia suffers from a severe gender gap: the online encyclopedia has fewer and less extensive articles on women and queer artists. This inclusive event is dedicated to improving coverage of gender, feminism, and the arts on Wikipedia. On March 24, we invite you to edit Wikipedia throughout the day and contribute to closing the information gap online. No experience necessary!

Event organizers will be available to answer questions and assist editors in an open Zoom meeting from noon – 4 p.m. Before the event, participants are encouraged to first create a Wikipedia account, log into the dashboard, and register for our open zoom meeting.

Please continue to check this page for additional updates and editing resources.

Additional information:

Before our event on March 24, please visit go.osu.edu/editaf2021 to create a Wikipedia account and join our event dashboard.

If you require an accommodation such as live captioning or interpretation to participate in this event, please email libevents@osu.edu as soon as possible. Requests made at least one week prior to the event will generally allow us to provide seamless access, but the university will make every effort to meet requests made after this date.
