Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon
March 30, 2019
11:00 am-3:00 pm
Did you know that 90 percent of Wikipedia articles are written by men? You can help change that statistic. In celebration of Women’s History Month, the CMA and the University of South Carolina School of Visual Arts and Design join forces as part of the larger Art+Feminism movement to help better represent women and gender non-binary persons on Wikipedia. Kick off the day with Curator Catherine Walworth for Broad Strokes, a tour of women in the CMA collection at 11:00 a.m. Then jump into editing mode from Noon to 3:00 p.m. No prior Wikipedia experience is necessary; we will offer tutorials for beginners, art history reference materials, and extra support. While some laptops will be available, you are encouraged to bring your own laptop, power cord, and extension cord if possible.
Edit-a-thon free. Tour free with membership or admission. Join today!
