Hi Wiki-Yorkers,

On Saturday December 3, 2016, in conjunction with a global campaign, the
Guggenheim will host its fifth Wikipedia edit-a-thon—or, #guggathon—to
enhance Wikipedia's coverage of modern and contemporary artists from
Greater China.

The event will cap off Wikipedia Asian Month, an online campaign dedicated
to augmenting Asian content on Wikipedia throughout November.

Saturday, December 3, 2016
11:00 AM to 3:00 PM

Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
1071 5th Ave, New York, NY
Enter at the 88th Street entrance via the ramp at 88th Street and Fifth

New and experienced editors are welcome. The event will include a training
session for participants who are new to Wikipedia, and Wikipedia
specialists will be on hand to provide basic instruction and editing

Local editors will receive complimentary tickets to tour the exhibition
Tales of Our Time, after the editing session

The Guggenheim aims to raise awareness of the artists featured in the Tales
of Our Time exhibition supported by The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation
Chinese Art Initiative, and build on the model of campaigns like the
Wikipedia Edit-a-thon at the Guggenheim: Women in Architecture, Wikipedia
Edit-a-thon at the Guggenheim: Contemporary Art of the Middle East and
North Africa, and Art+Feminism.

RSVP and more details here:



All are welcome, and let me know if you have any questions, or if you are
interested in greater engagement by bringing along a student group, or any
other group who are interested in editing articles on contemporary Chinese
