Wikistorming to Raise Women Artists’ Wikipedia Presence with Public's Help

Call to Edit 2016

Technology meets art on Friday, March 4, when a Penn State Wikistorming event, the 2016 Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon, invites the public to elevate the presence of women artists online. The second annual daylong event, part of a worldwide effort, is being held in advance of International Women’s Day, celebrated this year on March 8 under the theme “Pledge for Parity.”

Satellite edit-a-thon events are scheduled to take place at universities and museums across the country and internationally, including locations in Amsterdam, Paris, Moscow, Brussels and Berlin. Penn State’s Edit-a-thon, sponsored by the University Libraries, the College of Arts and Architecture and Wikimedia District of Columbia, begins at 10 a.m. in 207 Arts Cottage on the University Park campus. Interested participants, who are welcome regardless of level of technology knowledge or experience, are encouraged to bring a laptop.
