Wiki Edit-a-thon@Eyebeam Saturday February 1st, noon-6pm

 

 

Join the “Art + Feminism” Wikipedia Edit-a-thon @ Eyebeam, aimed at collaboratively expanding Wikipedia articles covering Art and Feminism, and the biographies of women artists organized by Eyebeam Fellows, members of ARLIS, faculty of CUNY College of Staten Island, members of the Wikimedia NYC Chapter, and METRO’s own Wikipedian-in-Residence.

The event is open to anyone who wishes to attend. No Wikipedia editing experience necessary; as needed throughout the event, tutoring will be provided for Wikipedia newcomers.

Location: Eyebeam Art and Technology Center (540 West 21st Street)
Time: Saturday February 1, noon – 6pm

Tutorials for the beginner Wikipedian, reference materials, and light refreshments will be provided. Please bring a laptop or plan to share with someone as Eyebeam has no more than a few computers to lend out. For the editing-averse, we invite you to stop by to show your support and learn more about Wikipedia.

Eyebeam is happy to be providing childcare; please contact us at artandfeminismwiki@gmail.com to let us know the age and number of children requiring supervision.

There are also regional events that day in Brooklyn, Westchester County, and the Hudson Valley, as well as over 22 satellite locations worldwide.
