Know My Name NGA Wikipedia edit-a-thon
Know My Name edit-athon: help tell a new story of Women in Australian art.
Learn how to create and edit Wikipedia entries and help us increase information about 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 Alice Woods, Education and Projects 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 for women artists.

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.
