Are there still places available?

There are! Email Brian on brian.wood@huttcity.govt.nz to book yours

Do I have to be female to come to this event?

The event is open to everyone. Wikipedia does have a significant imbalance between the numbers of male and female editors, so women are particularly warmly invited.

Do I need to know how to edit Wikipedia already?

No! The first half of the day is all about helping you get to grips with Wikipedia.

Do I have to work on women artists?

Art+Feminism is all about improving the presence of women artists on Wikipedia. But we'll help you out no matter what your topic of interest.

We have prepared a list of women artists who are poorly represented on Wikipedia if you're looking for a place to start.

What do I need to bring?

A laptop is essential, some paper and a pen (old school!) will be handy, and if you already have books or articles about a person you're interested in bring them along - we'll have loads of reference material available too.

Hopefully everything else you need to know is covered on the events page, but if not, just let us know!
