Art + Feminism Wikipedia Editor Training

Uptown Campus
Howard-Tilton Memorial Library

Featuring Michael Mandiberg

Guest Presenter: Michael Mandiberg http://www.mandiberg.com/about/

Roughly 10% of editors on Wikipedia are women. Wikipedia is the largest and most popular general reference work on the internet with more than 40 million articles in more than 250 different languages. The fact is when we don’t tell our stories or participate in the ways our history is preserved, it gets erased. Gaps in the coverage of knowledge about women, gender, feminism, and the arts on one of the most visited websites in the world is a big problem and we need your help to fix it.

The tools of change are in your hands. Michael Mandiberg from Art+Feminism will be leading a Train the Trainer workshop in advance of the sixth annual international Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon. This tutorial is for both the beginner Wikipedian and organizers planning a March editathon. Learn the best practices on writing entries that stick and how to facilitate the empowerment of your community.

Art+Feminism is a campaign improving coverage of cis and transgender women, non-binary folks, feminism and the arts on Wikipedia. From coffee shops and community centers to the largest museums and universities in the world, Art+Feminism is a do-it-yourself and do-it-with-others campaign teaching people of all gender identities and expressions to edit Wikipedia. http://www.artandfeminism.org/

Event is open to all.
