Join Parlour for a casual edit-a-thon to help increase the number of Wikipedia articles on women in architecture and the built environment. Drop in to this special session at the Melbourne Art Book Fair, any time between 11am and 1pm. From the novice to the professional Wikipedia editor, Parlour will help you get started and ensure you have fun editing in company.
To join in, sign up to Wikipedia before the event think about what you’d like to edit and collect some material. See some topic suggestions and references. Take a look at the WikiD Guides to Editing Wikipedia. Bring your laptop, any references you’ve collected on your topic, and a sense of humour. References and guidelines provided.
Parlour; women, equity, architecture is an advocacy organisation committed to gender equity in architecture. Parlour provides a ‘space to speak’, bringing together research, informed opinion and resources on women, equity and architecture in Australia. It seeks to expand the spaces and opportunities available to women while also revealing the many women who already contribute.
As activists and advocates, the Parlour team aims to generate debate and discussion. As researchers and scholars, they provide serious analysis and a firm evidence base for change. As women active in Australian architecture they seek to open up opportunities and broaden definitions of what architectural activity might be.
