Artists and activists who identify as women, non-binary, trans, queer, Black, Indigenous, or People of Color only make up a fraction of contributors and content subjects in Wikipedia. To rectify these biases, the U‑M Library, Stamps Gallery, Digital Studies Institute, and the University of Michigan Museum of Art will be hosting the sixth annual Ann Arbor Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon. All events are free and open to the public.
