Art and Feminism (stylized as Art+Feminism) is an annual worldwide edit-a-thon to add content to Wikipedia about female artists.

A Malta edition was introduced by Alexandra Pace and Nicole Bearman at Blitz in Valletta in 2018, with support from Wikimedia Community Malta who integrated it into the annual Wiki Loves Art initiative.

In 2019, WCM made Art+Feminism an integral part of its annual Wiki Loves Art activities. See Wiki Loves Art 2019 for full details.

NOTE: you only need to do two things to participate fully in either of the Wikipedia editing workshops and edit-a-thons:

  1. CREATE A WIKIPEDIA USER ACCOUNT (if you don't already have one)
  2. Bring a laptop or wifi-enabled tablet device with you, if you have one

If you like, you can also learn a little about editing ahead of time here or here.

If you really want to get ahead of the curve, see Getting started on Wikipedia for more information.

Goal for these sessions: to create and edit Wikipedia pages about women artists in Malta, especially ones involved in the associated exhibitions.
