WOMEN. WIKIPEDIA. DESIGN. #WIKID
When: 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM SUNDAY, MARCH 8
Where: At The Center
The Center for Architecture is hosting Women.Wikipedia.Design.#WikiD, a Wikipedia Edit-a-thon organized by ArchiteXX, an independent, unaffiliated organization for women in architecture that seeks to transform the profession by bridging the academy and practice.
On International Women’s Day, March 8, ArchiteXX would like to invite as many people as possible to contribute new pages and expand on existing information in Wikipedia about women designers, architects, and all those involved in the creation of the built environment. The organization is seeking to create a global effort in order to write in the most diverse range of women. Because there are so many women to write about, ArchiteXX sees this as an inaugural of what will hopefully become an annual event.
ArchiteXX has created help sheets including Wikipedia entry protocol and citing criteria, available here: http://goo.gl/bJBAF3. We encourage participants to develop lists of women they would like to write in, along with references they will be citing and images they would like to include.
Please submit the women you will write about to the following form: http://goo.gl/forms/xIf4cUOPaH.
We hope you will participate and encourage everyone you know to join us to make this a truly global event.
Now let’s increase the online presence of women!
Suggested Donation: $10
