[Wikimedia-l] [10.15.15] Wikipedia Editathon at the Guggenheim: Women in Architecture
Hi everyone,

Pleased to e-meet you. I’m Mikayla Lynch, associate manager at the Guggenheim Museum in New York and founder of the Guggenheim Wikipedia Initiative. I’m writing to formally invite you to the Guggenheim Museum for our upcoming Wikipedia editathon—or, #guggathon—a day of Wikipedia editing, and public programming dedicated to creating, updating, and improving articles related women in architecture. The Guggenheim, in collaboration with the Beverly Willis Architecture Foundation, Harvard’s Women in Design, and WikiD: Women Wikipedia Design, is hosting a daylong editathon at the Guggenheim that will include programming, an editing training, and an architectural tour of the museum. All are invited, with no specialized knowledge of the subject or Wikipedia editing experience required. Please bring your laptop and power cord; we will provide research resources, WiFi, and a list of suggested topics on hand.
