    12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

    Add to Calendar 03/14/2020 12:00 PM 03/14/2020 4:00 PM America/New_York Canceled: Corning Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon

    In response to COVID-19, this program has been canceled. Stay tuned for potential reschedulings. Read more at rockwellmuseum.org/health

    Free and open to people of all gender identities

    RSVP requested by March 11; walk-ins welcome

    Location: Rakow Research Library, Corning Museum of Glass

    In an ongoing spirit of collaboration, we’re thrilled to partner with Corning Museum of Glass for their third annual communal updating of Wikipedia entries on subjects related to women working with art and glass.

    Wikipedia’s gender trouble is well-documented. In a 2011 survey, the Wikimedia Foundation found that less than 10% of its contributors were women. While the reasons for the gender gap are up for debate, the practical effect of this disparity is not: content is skewed by the lack of representation from women. Let’s change that!

    • This is a free event, and no editing experience is needed.
    • Come for an hour or stay for the whole event.
    • We will provide tutorials for beginner Wikipedians, reference materials, and refreshments.
    • Please create a Wikipedia account before the event.
    • Bring your laptop, power cord, and ideas for entries that need updating or creation. A limited number of laptops will be available for those who need them.
    • For the editing-averse, we hope you will stop by to show your support. Visit the Wikipedia event page for the agenda and more information about what we will be editing.

    We invite people of all gender identities and expressions to participate!

    We encourage you to RSVP by Wednesday, March 11, but drop-ins are welcome. RSVP to rakow@cmog.org or +1 (607) 438-5300.
