Plan to join us for an inclusive and fun one-day event. We are planning to bring together diverse communities to create and work on Wikipedia articles related to women in the arts. You can learn more about the gender gap at WikiProject Women and read more about the Art+Feminism campaign on their page.

This event is hosted by the UT student organization Advocating for Women in Technology (AWIT), UT Fine Arts Library, and Blanton Museum of Art and is open to the community.
