12 – 1pm Wikipedia Tutorial
1 – 4pm Edit-A-Thon
E.P. Taylor Research Library & Archives, Art Gallery of Ontario
The Art Gallery of Ontario Library & Archives celebrates International Women’s Day by hosting a satellite event of the international Art+Feminism Wikipedia edit-a-thon. This is a chance to put the AGO’s thousands of artist files and books to excellent use as reference material for building up Wikipedia content on wom*n artists – especially Canadian wom*n artists. Everyone is welcome and no Wikipedia editing experience is necessary – there will be tutorials and one-on-one coaching available. Come and take part, or just come have some snacks and cheer us on. With special guests AGO Artists-in-Residence Deirdre Logue and Allyson Mitchell, Rosamond Ivey Special Collections Archivist Amy Furness, and more.
Please bring a laptop and create a Wikipedia account in advance.
