Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon

Several times between 2016 and 2018, I convened with information professionals, art historians, and a range of other individuals dedicated to improving representation of female-identified and non-binary artists on Wikipedia. The Art + Feminism Wikipedia  Edit-a-thon is an international effort to improve both the quantity and quality of entries about these figures, as well as to create a more diverse group of Wikipedia editors.

In my capacity as a volunteer at Pittsburgh’s edit-a-thons, I have been able to sharpen my own editing skills, and to use those skills to instruct other new Wikipedia editors in the technical and social aspects of editing entries on the site.
