Women's Art Register
The Women’s Art Register (W.A.R.) is Australia's living archive of women's art practice (cis, non-binary and trans inclusive), and a national artist-run, not-for-profit community and resource in Melbourne, Australia.
In 2019 Wikimedia Australia and the Women’s Art Register partnered to run two edit-a-thon's. The editors added several new articles and almost 20,000 words about creative women to Wikipedia in their first edit-a-thon, and for the second, held at Richmond Library, 74,000 words and 7 new articles were added.
In 2021 our partnership has continued and we look forward to collaborating with the Women's Art Register on future events to help encourage more women to contribute to Wikipedia, and improve the coverage of under-represented subjects on Wikimedia sites.
