National Gallery Research Library, Level 3
Free, registration essential
In conjunction with International Women’s Day help us increase information about Australian women artists on Wikipedia. Learn about the world’s largest and most popular research tool and how to edit Wikipedia entries.
Just over 19% of biographies on Wikipedia are about women. When it comes to women artists and creators, that number is even lower.
Join Belinda Spry and James Gaunt from Wikimedia Australia and the National Gallery’s Research Library staff for an interactive workshop where you will have the opportunity to work on Wikipedia entries of artists featured in the National Gallery’s Know My Name initiative.
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.
