Thinking of coming to the Edit-a-thon? Please create a user account in advance and register as attending on this page: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia
:Meetup/Toronto/Bi_Arts_Festival (where you can also check out our list of «suggested» people, groups, and events to edit).
Please join us in creating a scent-free environment for this and all Bi Arts Festival events. Check out Peggy Munson on being fragrance-free (https://goo.gl/Fi8uHy) & Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha on how to manifest this and why it matters (https://goo.gl/a8515A). The first floor is accessible through the rear of the house (a volunteer will be stationed at the front door to help facilitate access); the first floor washroom is not fully accessible (narrow door and height of toilet and sink).
About the Event: Help write our collective history by editing and/or creating bisexual content on Wikipedia! Our focus for the afternoon will be on both creating new content and well as improving entries on bisexual and bisexual-spectrum experience in Canadian art, history and culture. We seek to represent and celebrate Canadian bi+ people, events, and movements. The event is open to all. No Wikipedia editing experience is necessary; tutoring will be provided for Wikipedia newcomers.
Are you an experienced Wikipedia editor? We are looking for mentors / trainers for this event. To share your valuable experience with new editors please send a message to [email protected]
with the subject line “Wikipedia Mentor.”
We're making a list! Do you have ideas for new content, or want to share with us pages that need editing? Post your ideas in the discussion below.
What to Bring: Attendees should bring their own laptops & power cords. No laptop? No worries, get in touch and we will see what we can do.
