SAT 6 OCT, 10:30AM - 3:30PM
FREE, AUCKLAND WAR MEMORIAL MUSEUM BOARDROOM LEVEL 2

 

A 2011 survey by the Wikimedia foundation found that only 10% of online editors are women. The absence of gender diversity in the online community has created skewed content that erases prominent figures, including artists! Let’s change that.

Join us at Auckland War Memorial Museum in association with ArtWeek 2018, to learn how to edit and share knowledge on the fifth most searched website in the world - Wikipedia. We will provide tutorials, refreshments and viewings of our library collection to inspire and motivate beginner editors! All you need to bring is a laptop!

We invite people of all gender identities and expressions to participate, particularly transgender and cisgender women.

10:30am - 11:30am 'Wikipedia for beginners tutorial'
11:30am - 3:30pm 'Edit-a-thon'

Please create a Wikipedia account before the event.
