Learn how to create and edit Wikipedia entries and help us increase information about Australian women artists on the world’s largest and most popular research tool.

Just over 19% of biographies on Wikipedia are about women. When it comes to women artists and creators, that number is even lower.

Join Caddie Brain, Executive Officer, Wikimedia Australia and the National Gallery’s Research Library staff for a free interactive workshop where you will have the opportunity to work on Wikipedia entries of artists featured in Know My Name: Australian Women Artists 1900 to Now.

The workshop will include research resources and access to the Gallery’s specialist Research Library. Basic computer skills are required. No previous Wikipedia editing experience is necessary. Bring your own laptop. Extra computers will be available on request.

Further information will be provided on registration.

Presented in partnership with Wikimedia Australia as part of the National Gallery’s Know My Name initiative to increase representation of women and gender diverse artists.
