Just 18 per cent of biographies on Wikipedia are about women. When it comes to female artists and creators, that number is even lower. Wikimedia Australia is partnering with the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra's Know My Name project to enhance the understanding and appreciation of work by Australian artists who identify as women.
On the weekend of International Women's Day, join us at Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery and learn to create new Wikipedia pages about female creators. You'll be joining new editors all around Australia who are attending workshops this very weekend to do their bit.
Become part of the Wikipedia community of volunteers who collaboratively create and maintain the world’s largest and most popular research tools.
No experience required though basic computer skills recommended. Bring your own laptop, please register for a Wikipedia log in before the event! We can help you if you need a hand: [email protected]
