About the event[edit]

Join us on International Women's Day and change the internet!

In the lead up to our Winifred Knights exhibition at the Gallery, we will be encouraging attendees to edit or create Wikipedia pages for female artists who have either been exhibited at the Gallery or have work in our Permanent Collection. Other suggestions for entries include significant female sitters in the paintings in our permanent collection, such as Mary Linley.

There will talks about the artist Winifred Knights, the role of female artists today, and the history of women in digital media.

"Art+Feminism is a rhizomatic campaign to improve coverage of women & the arts on Wikipedia, & to encourage female editorship.

Wikimedia Foundation found that less than 10% of its contributors identify as female. While the reasons for the gender gap are up for debate, the practical effect of this disparity is not. Content is skewed by the lack of female participation. This represents an alarming absence in an increasingly important repository of shared knowledge.

We invite people of all gender identities and expressions, particularly transgender, cisgender, and gender nonconforming women, to address this absence by organizing in-person, communal updating of Wikipedia’s entries on art and feminism. All our materials have Creative Commons licensing, so we encourage you to reference and remix our workflows and training materials to suit the needs of your community."[1]

The Gallery is wheelchair accessible. If you have any questions regarding accessibility, please contact us.

Refreshments will provided in the form of a light lunch, tea and coffee. Feel free to bring your own packed lunch.

There will talks on the artist Winifred Knights, the role of female artists today, and the history of women in digital media. Timings to be confirmed.

In a 2011 survey, the Wikimedia Foundation found that less than 10% of its contributors identify as female while only 15% of the English Wikipedia's biographies are about women. As a result, content is skewed by the lack of female participation.
