February 27 update:
We regret to inform everyone that we have postponed the Wikipedia editathon and panel talk after prime minister Abe urged organisers of cultural events to take measures to minimise the risks of the spread of Covid-19 yesterday.
We hope to bring you this event on March 27 (Fri) in the same format as originally planned.
We will continue to review the situation.

この度、政府からの「新型コロナウイルス感染拡大を防ぐためのイベントの開催自粛要請」 の方針に従い、テンプル大学にて実施を予定していた『アート+フェミニズムエディタソン』並びにトークイベントの延期を決定いたしました。



Join us to learn how to edit Wikipedia, increase articles about women's contribution to the arts on one of the top ten accessed websites in the world. Skills exchanges, lightning talks and a vegan food truck will make this a colorful day of art history activism.

WHY an Edit-a-thon?

Wikimedia’s gender trouble is well-documented. While the reasons for the gender gap are up for debate, the practical effects of this disparity, however, are not. Content is skewed by the lack of female participation. This represents an alarming absence in an increasingly important repository of shared knowledge.

Let’s change that.

Join us for an international communal updating of Wikipedia entries on subjects related to art and feminism. We will provide tutorials for the beginner Wikipedian. Bring your laptop, power cord and ideas for entries that need updating or creation.

EVERYONE is welcome! People of all gender identities and expressions are invited to participate. And even if you don't have time to edit, please stop by and show your support.

LOCATION: Student Parliament Lounge (ground floor) Temple University , Japan Campus
1-14-29 Taishido, Setagaya City, Tokyo 154-0004

WHAT TO BRING: Please bring your laptop, power cord and ideas for entries that need updating or creation. For the editing-averse, we urge you to stop by to show your support.
