Wikipedia edit-a-thon at the Getty, October 15, 2015
The Getty Research Institute and East of Borneo are co-hosting the Los Angeles meet-up of the Guggenheim’s Women in Architecture edit-a-thon, a global campaign to improve Wikipedia’s coverage of women in architecture and to increase the number of female contributors to Wikipedia.

On Thursday October 15, 2015, between 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., bring your laptops with power cords and join Getty and East of Borneo staff members at the Getty Research Institute (Research Library, Plaza Level) to create and edit Wikipedia articles for the lengthy list of women that are not (yet!) represented or underrepresented.
