What is Art+Feminism?

Art+Feminism is a campaign improving coverage of cis and transgender women, feminism and the arts on Wikipedia. From coffee shops and community centers to the largest museums and universities in the world, Art+Feminism is a do-it-yourself and do-it-with-others campaign teaching people of all gender identities and expressions to edit Wikipedia. Since 2014 Art+Feminism has hosted edit-a-thons and has gathered in 500+ events globally to create and improve thousands of Wikipedia pages.

Creating an Account

Advice on selecting your username:  Though you can choose to use your real name, as some Wikipedia editors do, you can also choose a pseudonym–Wikipedia does not require one one or the other. If you're completing a course assignment, remember that your professor and classmates will likely see your username (and know whose it is). Furthermore, anyone can look at a Wikipedia article's edit history and see the username of anyone who has edited the article. Consider if you want a username that reflects your personal identity.  Usernames that imply they are shared by multiple users are not recommended (e.g., GSFS101-ABC).

Want more advice?  Wikipedia's Username Policy has guidance for new users on how to choose.
