PNCA - Pacific Northwest College of Art

Join us for the second of two Art & Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-Thons this Spring in Portland! These events require no previous experience and are open to people of all gender identities. Just bring a laptop and charging cable and we'll provide everything else! Snacks and experienced, dependable childcare provided! Please RSVP via the EventBrite link...this is not mandatory, but helpful to the organizers, especially if you need childcare.

About the event:

Wikimedia’s gender trouble is well-documented. In a 2011 survey, the Wikimedia Foundation found that less than 10% of its contributors identify as female. While the reasons for the gender gap are up for debate, the practical effect of this disparity, however, is not. Content is skewed by the uneven gender participation. This represents an alarming absence in an increasingly important repository of shared knowledge. We all know that this bias is not just about gender. Women of color are often the least represented voices in history. Let’s change that! This event is about amplifying voice. Attendees are encouraged to edit any entry of interest related to arts, feminism, gender studies, activism and LGBTQ issues. All are welcome who care about the representation of all genders in Wikipedia’s content and among its contributors. We will provide tutorials for the beginner Wikipedian, reference materials, and laptops. Bring your own laptop if you have one and any ideas for entries that need updating or creation. We will have a couple extra computers available. For the editing-averse, we urge you to stop by to show your support, learn more about this project, and eat snacks.
