This week, event co-organizers Vicky Clark and Alex Oliver were interviewed by Katie Blackley at be Galleries in Lawrenceville.

In 2011, Wikipedia’s oversight group, the Wikimedia Foundation, released the results of their first semi-annual survey. They found that only nine percent of all editors were female, exposing a significant gender gap among those creating content and suggesting a potential bias toward the articles available on the site. This weekend, Pittsburgh will hold an “Edit-a-Thon” where they’ll attempt to improve existing articles and create ones. Art critic and Wikipedian Alexandra Oliver and independent curator Vicky Clark are hosting the event and share their expectations for the meet-up.
