‘Women at Work’ Wikipedia Editathon
Learn how to edit or create wikipedia pages for women's histories
Our Research Curator, Rosamund Lily West, has been working with colleagues across the sector to establish an Art Fund Subject Specialist Network for those working in museums and archives on the history of women within typically male organisations (as the Royal Society of Sculptors once was).
This Wikipedia editathon is for those working in the field who are interested in increasing public access and knowledge of these women’s histories through Wikipedia. The event will involve a Wikimedian training session on how to edit and create entries for women on Wikipedia.
This event has its own hashtag #wawwiki so you can follow along on Twitter.
The ‘Women at Work’ Wikipedia Editathon has been made possible with Art Fund support.
