Please join us for a fun event that brings together diverse communities to create and improve Wikipedia articles related to women in the arts—art, architecture, design, landscape architecture and related fields.

Despite its wide reach, Wikipedia suffers from a severe gender imbalance: since most editors are men, articles conform to men's interests and perspectives. In an effort to change this, we are gathering a diverse group together to celebrate women's cultural achievements.

We will provide tutorials for Wikipedia newcomers, reference materials, and snacks. Bring your laptop, power cord, and ideas for entries that need updating or creation. Stop by for a little bit or stay for the whole afternoon. No Wikipedia editing experience necessary!

If you are unfamiliar with Wikipedia, you might try this training module which will help explain a lot of things about Wikipedia.
