BIPOC in the Built Wiki Edit-A-Thon: Cultural Preservation + Environmental Justice

BIPOC in the Built Wiki Edit-A-Thon: Cultural Preservation + Environmental Justice Online

This is the second day in this week-long virtual event participants will build community while creating new and edit existing Wikipedia pages of BIPOC designers, activists, planners and others whose work is connected to the built environment.  Attendees will participate in training and begin editing Wikipedia pages of BIPOC figures who have left their mark on the fields of art, architecture, art history, activism, dance, graphic design, landscape architecture, urban planning, urban design, and more. The Edit-a-thon will have synchronous and asynchronous components so participants can edit in person and at their convenience. Live editing will take place via Zoom and support will be available by Slack. Zoom links will be emailed to participants the day of the event. Please email Jennifer Snow (jennifer.l.snow@yale.edu) if you have any questions.

No prior experience editing Wikipedia is required. Join us at any of the events or follow along on our dashboard and edit at your leisure!
