Edit-a-thon

It's that time of year again—the annual Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon is here, and happening on Saturday, March 24, from 11am to 4pm. The Edit-a-thon was started five years ago by the organization Art+Feminism with the explicit mission of “cis and transgender women, feminism and the arts on Wikipedia.” Wikipedia—the free, open-source, online encyclopedia, is the most popular general reference site on the internet. And most of its editors are men. What that means is that topics, issues and artists that men value receive a tremendous amount of coverage, while those outside of that myopic view, don't. That gap is a huge problem, and the Edit-a-thon exists to train new editors to equalize what the website shares with the world. It's all happening at the Albuquerque Museum (2000 Mountain NW), just show up with your laptop—training and snacks are provided.
