Event description

Description

As the largest general reference work on the internet, Wikipedia is hugely popular. But did you know that less than 10% of the editors on Wikipedia are women, and only 17% of Wikipedia biographies are about women? Therefore it goes without saying that women artists are vastly under-represented in Wikipedia content.

The Women's Art Register works to improve coverage about women artists both online and with our Hard Copy Archive at Richmond Library. Join us as we partner once again with Wikimedia Australia and #WikiD, to amplify the voices of Australian women artists and designers.

WikiD: women, Wikipedia, design is an international education and advocacy program to increase the representation of women in the built environment on Wikipedia. This collaborative project between Parlour, Architexx (New York) and n-ails (Berlin) has seed funding from the Wikimedia Foundation.


Please join us at the Women's Art Register for this FREE event.


Facilitated by Pru Mitchell, President of Wikimedia Australia and the W.A.R committee.

Instructions for participants - please read through these instructions before attending to help make the most of the session:

1. Please RSVP via this page.

2. If you don't already have a Wikipedia account, please create one [https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:CreateAccount]
Note: you don't have to use your real name!, and add some info about yourself to your user page. (If you need help with this, you can do it at the event.)

3. Once you have an account, please email womensartregister@gmail.com. This will help us to communicate before, during and after the event, and to track the work we get done on the day.

4. Bring a laptop and power cord to the edit-a-thon if possible (It is much easier to learn than on a tablet or mobile).
