Event description
How many female artists can you name? Help us raise their profiles by learning to edit and create new Wikipedia pages.

About this Event

Just 18 per cent of biographies on Wikipedia are about women. When it comes to female artists and creators, that number is even lower.

Wikimedia Australia is partnering with the National Gallery of Australia's Know My Name project to enhance the understanding and appreciation of work by Australian artists who identify as women.

On the weekend of International Women's Day, join us at Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery and learn to create new Wikipedia pages about female creators.

You'll be joining new editor's all around Australia who are attending workshops this very weekend to do their bit.

Become part of the Wikipedia community of volunteers who collaboratively create and maintain the world’s largest and most popular research tools.

No experience required though basic computer skills recommended. Bring your own laptop! And make sure you register for a Wikipedia log in before the event! We can help you if you need a hand: caddie.brain@wikimedia.org.au
