Art & Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon

  • Date: Friday March 8, 2024 from 12:00pm to 4:00pm
  • Location: Surrey Art Gallery (13750 88 Ave, Surrey)
  • Tickets: Free!

Gender inequities in online spaces like Wikipedia contribute to a bias in content and language and erasure of knowledge and histories of women artists and communities. Surrey Art Gallery in partnership with Rungh Magazine would like to address the significant gender gap on Wikipedia and invite people of all gender identities and expressions to make an impact and support gender equality and the arts.

Research, develop, and deepen content about underrepresented women, Black, Indigenous, and people of colour and non-binary artists on one of the world’s most popular sites. Participants will learn how to research, create a user account, publish Wikipedia pages, and edit as well as maintain entries.

You are welcome to come with ideas for entries that need updating or creating. Pre-researched subjects 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.
