For those with an artistic side: Wikimedia UK, the National Library of Scotland, and the Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design have teamed up to organise an editathon on Scottish Women in Contemporary Art next Thursday, 13 March to be held at the University of Dundee.

The day will be split into three parts. The first will be an informal drop-in training and information session for any students, faculty, staff, or members of the public in Dundee who would like to learn more about Wikipedia and how to contribute. This will be followed by a formal round-table discussion on the relationship between artists, their work, and intellectual property rights in an increasingly open access digital world. Finally, all are welcome to join us in a tea-and-biscuit-fuelled editathon to put their newly acquired editing skills to work creating and improving articles about Scottish women who have left a lasting legacy in the artistic world.
