Improving Artist Diversity Edit-a-thon

One of the primary ways someone can quickly learn about art and artists is through Wikipedia. Our Edit-a-Thon will focus on improving or creating articles about contemporary artists with ties to the DMV area, particularly those about non-men and artists of color. This workshop will help students develop contact with their own art communities, writing skills, and a knowledge of Wikipedia policies.
