Wikipedia Art + Feminism wants you! Become a Wikipedia editor, and get involved in this international effort to improve public knowledge, specifically, coverage of women and the arts on Wikipedia. Everyone is welcome—no matter your gender identity, and regardless of your experience with editing. Editors contribute in different ways: writing entries, adding footnotes, translating text, uploading images, and looking up information for others. Others also just cheer us on and get the buzz going on social media. Join us in Ithaca as we address gender inequities in Wikipedia and focus on community and collective, improving, creating, and enhancing entries that paint a fuller picture of how we all participate in the arts.

2023 Information

We held an Art + Feminism edit-a-thon on April 14-15, 2023, from 1-5 pm on each day in Olin Library room 107 on the Cornell campus and 1-5 pm on April 16 at the Tompkins County Public Library in Ithaca, NY!

Co-sponsored by the American Studies Department, Department of Art, Feminist, Gender and Sexuality Studies Program, Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art, Department of History of Art and Visual Studies, Media Studies Program, and Society for the Humanities.

Workshops

We offered Wikipedia editing workshops before the event, as well as same-day training on day of main event:

During these workshops, we covered how Wikipedia works and why getting involved in Wikipedia Art + Feminism 2023 matters: getting an account and an overview of the basics of editing during a hands-on editing session.

You don’t have to be an expert to contribute! Get involved as a Wikipedia editor in this international effort to "improve coverage of women and the arts on Wikipedia."
