Just 18% of biographies on Wikipedia are about women. When it comes to women artists and creators, that number is even lower.
Wikimedia Australia is partnering with the National Gallery of Australia as part of the Know My Name initiative to enhance understanding and appreciation of work by Australian artists who identify as women.
Become part of the Wikipedia community of volunteers who collaboratively create and maintain the world’s largest and most popular research tools. On the weekend of International Women's Day, Wikimedia Australia’s Caddie Brain and the Gallery’s Research Library staff are holding an interactive four-hour workshop where you can learn to edit and make new entries to Wikipedia. You will have the opportunity to create a new page on a selected Australian woman artist.
