Description

We are here to help create a Wikipedia community in Beacon.

Join us for a second year updating Wikipedia entries on subjects related to Art and Feminism and Beacon. This local event is organized by librarians from Beacon as part of the international annual Art+Feminism campaign. We will provide tutorials for the beginner Wikipedia editor (it's easier than you think!), as well as reference materials and refreshments.
