Know My Name: Wikipedia Edit-a-thon

Two women with books and computers engaged in research
Two women with books and computers engaged in research

Overview

Learn how to create and edit Wikipedia entries and help increase information about women artists on the world’s largest and most popular research tool.

Just over 19% of biographies on Wikipedia are about women. When it comes to women artists and creators, that number is even lower.

Join Alice Woods, Education and Projects Officer, Wikimedia Australia and the National Gallery’s Research Library staff for a free interactive workshop where you will have the opportunity to work on Wikipedia entries for women artists.

The workshop will include research resources and access to the Gallery’s specialist Research Library. Basic computer skills are required. No previous Wikipedia editing experience is necessary. Bring your own laptop. Extra computers will be available on request.

Further information will be provided on registration. Limited availability, book now.

Presented in partnership with Wikimedia Australia as part of the National Gallery’s Know My Name initiative to increase representation of women and gender diverse artists.
