This event is indefinitely postponed due to the Coronavirus situation. Contact Kerrie Burn by email at library@ctc.edu.au to maintain contact with the project and other ways you can participate.

Join members of the University of Divinity in coordinating an Australian contribution to the international project: 1000 Women in Religion. Together our goal is to create 100 new Wikipedia entries for Australian women in religion in 2020, in addition to updating and improving already-published articles.



An all-day edit-a-thon will be held at Catholic Theological College on Friday 24 April 2020. Attendees do not necessarily have to edit Wikipedia pages on the day. You are welcome to come along and observe, do research, or offer support, and work alongside others who will be creating and editing Wikipedia pages. There will be a variety of roles depending on your skills and interests.

Mark the date in your diary now. Lunch and refreshments will be provided. Please bring along your own computer.

Please email library@ctc.edu.au if you have any queries, or if you would like to request to borrow a laptop on the day.
