Program Description

About this event:

Please join the Tompkins County Public Library and Cornell University Library for the 2024 Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon! This year, our theme is Solidarity, with a focus on artists/art/art movements affected or displaced by violence. We’ll be meeting up in person on Friday, April 19, from 10am to 5pm in Olin Library room 703, and from 3pm to 6pm at the Tompkins County Public Library (Makerspace/Digital Lab).You can pitch in for just half an hour or for the whole day, you can pitch in by writing an entry, adding a footnote, translating text, uploading images, or by looking up information for others. Everyone is welcome—no matter your gender, and regardless of experience with editing. Unfamiliar with Wikipedia? We’ll walk you through the process. If you already have collectives, groups, artists, writers, or performers in mind (whether cis, transgender, or non-binary), great! If you don’t, just pick from our list

Never edited Wikipedia before? See the following guide for resources to help you learn how to edit Wikipedia (including online resources and a full list of scheduled workshops):

All are welcome. In addition to Wikipedia editing, have fun with other creative activities–zine-making, button-making, and coloring.
