The Women's Art Activation

On international women’s day, March 8, Atelier Textile Club will be hosting the inaugural Stroud Wikithon where the public are invited to come and learn how to edit Wikipedia, work from a list of artists suggested by local experts and improve the representation of women artists of Gloucestershire on the global encyclopaedic resource.

Come and learn how to edit Wikipedia, update pages with referenced information on women who have contributed to the arts in Gloucestershire, past and present, and celebrate International Womens Day together.

Do you know of any overlooked, forgotten or neglected female artists, craftspeople, makers and cultural contributors in Gloucestershire, from the past or present? We are compiling a list of women artists, makers, and cultural contributors in Gloucestershire who could have (better) representation on Wikipedia.
