As part of Art+Feminism‘s annual worldwide edit-a-thon, LACMA presents this edit-a-thon focused on Women+Design+Craft.
Noon and 3pm: Art+Feminism Ambassador Stacey Allan leads a one-hour Wikipedia training workshop to walk you step by step through the process of creating and improving Wikipedia articles. Bring your laptop or tablet computer, power adapter, and any reference materials you’d like to work from or share.
2pm: LACMA Associate Curator Staci Steinberger will lead a free tour of West of Modernism: California Graphic Design, 1975–1995, focusing on key women represented in the exhibition.

Art+Feminism is a global do-it-yourself campaign to combat gender bias and improve the coverage of women, intersectional feminism, and the arts on Wikipedia, the world’s fifth most popular website. Anyone can edit Wikipedia, but not everyone does. Studies show that fewer than 16% of Wikipedia contributors identify as female and 75% are under the age of 30; content is skewed by the lack of representation by women and important stories remain untold. We’re working to change that.
