Want to be part of internet history? Women are hugely underrepresented on one of the web’s largest information sites, Wikipedia, and we need your help to change that. For Interdependence 17 at Manchester International Festival, we’re looking to add an unsung female-identified Mancunian to Wikipedia, or help improve an entry that is in dire need of a little love. Do you have any heroes? Tweet us on #wikiwomenMIF to tell us your pick by Thursday 22nd June.
We’re also in need of four volunteers to help us on the day, to show our audience how our hero is immortalised online. If you’re female identified, a speedy typer, and have an hour or two to spare on the 1st July, get in touch! Don’t worry if you’ve never used Wikipedia before, we’ll give you a crash course before the day. Drop Natalie at FutureEverything a line – firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks, and we look forward to your suggestions!
