Wikipedia Editathon

Join us in the Digital Reading Room as we work to increase the visibility of disabled artists.

A very exciting event is happening this week in the Digital Reading Room of the University’s David Wilson Library. And we hope you can join us …

On Wednesday (29 May) we will be welcoming representatives from the Wikimedia Foundation to the University, to help us with an ‘Editathon’ (into the night …) – re-editing the representation of disability arts in Wikipedia.

Working with our friends at the National Disability Arts Collection and Archive, we will be working together to write new pages+content for Wikipedia, shining a light on artists who identify as disabled, or who represent disability arts.

It’s an amazing opportunity to get a masterclass from Wikipedia themselves on how to edit online content, but also a chance to work directly with NDACA and its artists to make a real difference to the representation of disability arts online.

Book your place, and we’ll see you there!
