Auburn University Libraries' 5th annual Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon will be held in spring 2022.
The Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon is an international event designed to improve content on women in the fields of architecture, art, and design on Wikipedia.
Adding references to books and journal articles to existing entries on these women architects, artists, and designers is especially encouraged.
Auburn University Libraries' Edit-a-thon invites people of all genders and identities to address this absence and participate in the event.
"On March 6-8, 2015, approximately 1500 participants convened in 75 locations in 17 countries, on 4 continents, to edit Wikipedia articles on women and the arts. During, this day, nearly 400 new articles were created and over 500 articles received significant improvements. The event was covered by the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and ARTNews, among many others. This was a productive and substantial growth from the inaugural 2014 event, which had around 600 participants in 31 locations and created 101 new articles, and improved 90."
