Saturday October 21, 1:00 - 4:00 PM: Wikipedia Edit-a-thon: Indigenous Women in the Arts at the Kitchener Public Library

Only 10% of Wikipedia contributors identify as female, which has led to an under representation of women focused pages. The Kitchener Public Library, the Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery, Open Sesame and the University of Waterloo Library are co-hosting an edit-a-thon on Saturday, October 21, 2017 to disrupt this trend and improve awareness about Indigenous Women in the arts. 

First-time and experienced editors welcome! We'll teach you the basics of Wiki editing, provide access to resource materials from local archives, and show you how to rewrite history.

Participation is free - please register in advance with Kitchener Public Library as space is limited.
