Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon at the Brooklyn Museum

Feb 1, 2014 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

ENIACscientists

Bring your laptops and power cords and help us correct Wikipedia’s pervasive gender bias and inaccuracies. Eyebeam Art+Technology Center has initiated an Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon across the U.S. and Canada, and the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art and Project Continua will host its Brooklyn meet-up.

Join us as we add authoritative biographical information about the women represented in The Dinner Party, Judy Chicago’s monument to women’s contributions to history, and in Project Continua, an online multimedia resource on women’s intellectual history.

If you’re a beginner Wikipedian who wants to learn more about these largely overlooked feminist figures, reference materials, technical assistance, and a variety of experts will be available.
