Dundee Meetup & Edit-a-thon
As part of the Art+Feminism campaign to improve coverage of women and the arts on Wikipedia, Dundee is hosting two edit-a-thons. On Friday at Hannah Maclure Centre at the University of Abertay, and on Saturday at CentreSpace in the Visual Research Centre of Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design. The events will focus on expanding or improving Wikipedia entries for women artists working in film, video and new media, particularly those associated with the exhibition Coded After Lovelace, and the European Women's Video Art from the 1970s and 1980s Research Project. Activities will also include new editor orientation and training. Snacks will be provided!

List of articles to edit
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.
We have also included suggestions (below) for women artists who currently lack articles or whose articles need expansion or editing.
