Ticket Price: Free

Add to Calendar 2/29/2020 12:00 PM 2/29/2020 4:00 PM America/Chicago SAMA + Artpace | Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon

Join SAMA + Artpace for a communal updating of Wikipedia entries on subjects related to gender, art, and feminism!

In a 2011 survey, the Wikimedia Foundation found that fewer than 10% of its contributors were women. The reasons for this disparity is debatable, but the practical effect is not: content is skewed.  SAMA and Artpace are here to change that by cohosting a series of Wikipedia Edit-a-Thons through Art+Feminism throughout 2020. 

Our first event will be held at SAMA and themed around the exhibition Texas Women: A New History of Abstract Art. The goal is to learn how to edit Wikipedia articles, create one for every artist in the exhibition, and add citations.

Worried you don't have enough experience? No problem! We will provide tutorials and reference materials. 

Please click here to register an account on Wikipedia prior to the event. Also please remember to bring your own laptop and power cord. 

This event is free and includes ample breaks for communing or touring the exhibition (with the cost of admission).  SAMA will provide coffee, light snacks, and fruit.
