the Art & Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon, in Chicago on February 1, 2014
Eyebeam, Chelsea, New York
ALD6.jpg

Wikipedia’s gender trouble is well documented: in a 2010 survey, Wikimedia found that less than 13% of its contributors are female.[1] The reasons for the gender gap are up for debate: suggestions include leisure inequality, how gender socialization shapes public comportment, and the contentious nature of Wikipedia’s talk pages. The practical effect of this disparity, however, is not. Content is skewed by the lack of female participation. Many articles on notable women in history and art are absent on Wikipedia. This represents an alarming aporia in an increasingly important repository of shared knowledge.

We invite you to help address this absence at an Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon on Saturday, February 1, 2014 from noon to 6 p.m. at Eyebeam Art and Technology Center, 540 West 21st Street, New York City. We will provide tutorials for the beginner Wikipedian, reference materials, and light refreshments. For the editing-averse, we urge you to stop by to show your support. We are happy to be providing childcare; please contact us at artandfeminismwiki@gmail.com to let us know the age and number of children requiring supervision.

We also encourage remote participation; you can share your thoughts on the editing process in real-time here or on our tumblr. Satellite events will take place at: Flinders University in Adelaide, Australia; De Appel in Amsterdam, The Netherlands; University of Dundee in Scotland; University of Texas at Austin School of Information; Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore; School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, MA; Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art at the Brooklyn Museum (co-hosted by Project Continua); Parmer in Brooklyn (by invite only); Luke Lindoe Library at the Alberta College of Art and Design in Calgary, Canada; School of the Art Institute of Chicago; Dawson City, Yukon: Klondike Institute of Arts and Culture; Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design at the University of Dundee; Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University; NSCAD University Library in Halifax, Canada; University of Hong Kong; University of Iowa Center for the Book in Iowa City, IA; Women's Studio Workshop in Kingston, NY; School of Art and Design at Middlesex University, London; n.paradoxa in London (by invite only); The Public School in Los Angeles; University of Wisconsin–Madison School of Library & Information Studies; Eastern Bloc (co-hosted by Eastern Bloc, Studio XX, revue .dpi, and Skol) in Montreal, Canada; University of the Arts Greenfield Library in Philadelphia, PA; Portland State University; State University of New York at Purchase; CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts in San Francisco; Art Metropole in Toronto, Canada; Regis Art Center at the University of Minnesota in the Twin Cities; Seattle Attic Community Workshop; National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, DC; and more locations to be announced. If you would like to host an Edit-a-Thon please join in. If you are looking for training materials or have questions post on the talk page or contact one of the organizers.

List of artists for inspiration

This is an incomplete list of women artists active in the Netherlands, sorted by century of birth. Only a few hundred women are documented with works in public collections, most notably Caterina van Hemessen, Judith Leyster, Maria van Oosterwijck, Gesina ter Borch, Clara Peeters and Rachel Ruysch. Existing articles can be improved upon by adding pictures of their works, creating pages about specific artworks in museum collections, or adding references about specific aspects of their lives.

Suggested Topics

The following is a sampling of suggested articles to create or add upon. However, feel free to come up with your own ideas! In addition to the suggestions below, editors may consider cleaning up articles on more well-known women artists. Helpful updates could be as simple as: Making sure reference links are still appropriate and functional; Adding new inline citations/references; Adding a photo; Adding an infobox; Adding data to more fields in an existing infobox; Creating headings; Adding categories; etc. Editors may also choose to focus on women in design, performing arts, music, architecture, philosophy, politics, etc.

  • As an example of an article about an artist, see Lindsey Stirling. I can't vouch for the quality but it is certainly detailed.
