Event information[edit]

Our 2016 Art+Feminism editathon at California College of the Arts Simpson Library in San Francisco

Art+Feminism is a weekend-long event where people all over the world improve coverage of women and the arts on Wikipedia + encourage female editorship. You are invited to our edit-a-thon in San Francisco, and feel free to bring a friend! We will work together to improve articles on these themes. People with no Wikipedia editing experience are welcome; there will be experienced editors who can help you get started and answer all of your questions.

See List of articles to edit for some example topics, and you can also find your own topics to edit.

  • Date: Friday, March 10, 2017
  • Time: 3:00 pm – 7:00 pm (there will be presentations near the beginning especially for first-time editors, but you can stop by anytime during these hours and leave whenever you like)
  • Location: California College of the Arts, Simpson Library, 1111 8th St, San Francisco, CA 94107


Childcare will be available! Please contact with the first names and number of children requiring care, their ages, and what time you plan on attending.
