Help us improve the representation of women and non-binary artists on Wikipedia by joining our Wikipedia Edit-a-thon onsite at AAA.  

Art+Feminism: Wikipedia Edit-a-thon 2024 brings participants together to discuss, create, and improve Wikipedia articles about women and non-binary artists and makers from Asia. Organised with the assistance of Wikimedia Community User Group in Hong Kong, this event is part of Art+Feminism—an international initiative that strives to close information gaps related to gender, feminism, and the arts. This event is part of AAA and M+’s ongoing effort to contribute to discussions about the representation of art and visual culture in Asia on open-source knowledge platforms.  

Learn more about the Wikipedia Edit-a-thon series, and browse previous entries that participants have added, edited, or translated. 

The event is free and open to the public with registration.

We welcome anyone interested in learning about editing Wikipedia to attend, regardless of experience or background.
