This event will correct history and shine a light on artists who identify as disabled, or who represent disability arts by editing and making new pages on Wikipedia.Join us in University of Leicester’s Digital Reading Room in the David Wilson Library on Wednesday 29 May, from 1pm - late for a communal updating of Wikipedia entries on subjectsrelated to disability arts and artists. Wikimedia UK will provide training and support editing using research and information from online journals, papers, blogs and archive materials.The event and training are all free! Bring your own laptop. Research materials and refreshments will be provided!
