Art + Feminism is an international initiative building a community of activists committed to closing information gaps in gender and the arts starting with Wikipedia. For more than 10 years, everyone of all genders identities and expressions are welcome to attend or organize events to edit Wikipedia.
Learn how to research, create a user account, publish Wikipedia pages, edit, and maintain entries. You are welcome to come with ideas for entries that need updating or creating. Pre-researched artists and artworks from the Gallery’s permanent collection will also be available for entry.
No prior knowledge or practice of editing Wikipedia is required. However, to create new entries, participants must be registered Wikipedia users and have made ten previous edits on existing pages.
