Please bring your laptop with you! Participants are strongly encouraged to create a Wikipedia account prior to the event by clicking "create account" in the upper right hand corner of any Wikipedia page. Don't forget to bring your username and password with you to the event.
Wikipedia’s content and community skews male, creating significant gaps in an increasingly important repository of shared knowledge. We invite you to address this absence in an half-day, communal updating of Wikipedia’s entries related to art and feminism. There will be tutorials for the beginner Wikipedian, digital and print materials to reference, and light refreshments provided. Bring your own laptop, power cord, and ideas for entries that need updating or creation. Public computers are available, but limited. Attendees are encouraged to edit any entry of interest related to art, feminism, gender studies, and LGBTQ issues.
All are welcome!
To access the KU Art and Architecture Library please use the doors on the west side of the Spencer Museum of Art. Since the event is on the weekend you can freely park in the Red Lot just North of the building, lot 91. Please click on the image to the right for a map of the area.
