Art+Feminism is a campaign that started in response to a survey conducted by the Wikimedia Foundation in 2011. That survey found that less than 10% of contributors on Wikipedia were women. Art+Feminism is an initiative that seeks to change that by challenging the way women are silenced: through the preservation of history.

Join us for a communal updating of Wikipedia entries on subjects related to art and feminism. We will provide tutorials for the beginner Wikipedian, reference materials from the Menil Library, coffee and snacks, and community support. Bring your laptop, power cord and ideas for entries that need updating or creation. People of all gender identities and expressions are invited to participate.
