There is a significant gender gap on Wikipedia. Studies estimate that less than 15% of contributors identify as women. Gender inequities on Wikipedia contribute to a bias in content and language, and the erasure of knowledges and histories.
Surrey Art Gallery and Rungh Magazine would like to help address this gap and are inviting people of all gender identities and expressions to make an impact and support gender equality and the arts on one of the world’s most popular sites. In this event, participants will learn how to research, create a user account, publish Wikipedia pages, and edit and maintain entries.
Join us in person at the Surrey Art Gallery as we edit and research together. Come to the gathering with ideas for entries that need updating or creating.
Participants are welcome to come with ideas for entries that need updating or creating. Pre-researched artists and artworks from Surrey Art Gallery’s permanent collection will also be available for entry.
No prior knowledge or practice of editing Wikipedia is required. However, to create new entries, you must be a registered Wikipedia user and have made ten previous edits on existing pages.
