Wikipedia editing session for improving representation of women artists (Canadian, First Nations & OCADU)

This event continues the work of the Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon, which added more than 100 women artists to Wikipedia. With access to OCAD U library’s books and article databases, you are invited to help continue adding and editing entries for women artists, particularly Canadian and First Nations artists, and artists from the OCAD U community.

All are welcome, regardless of level of experience. A beginners Wikipedia tutorial will take place from 3 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. and more experienced editors will be available for one-on-one help throughout the event. No preparation is necessary, but we encourage participants to bring a laptop, and to create a Wikipedia account before the event, as there is a limit to how many accounts can be created from one IP address.
