This Sunday evening from 4-7pm, The Class of 1945 Library has invited all members of the Phillips Exeter Academy community to participate in our first Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon. We’ll be editing Wikipedia together to improve entries on subjects related to gender, feminism, and the arts. Expert Wikipedian and MIT Librarian Phoebe Ayers will provide tutorials and lead a discussion on Wikipedia.
This edit-a-thon is just one of many that is being held through the month of March as part of the international Art+Feminism campaign to improve content on cis and trans women and the arts on Wikipedia, and to encourage women to participate on the online encyclopedia.
Curious about what we’ll be doing at the edit-a-thon? Here’s a quick look at Art+Feminism Edit-a-thons from previous years.
This event is offered in conjunction with the Lamont Gallery’s Representing Feminism(s) exhibition February 23rd through April 21, 2018.
