Join us for #WikiAPA, a social evening of creating, updating, and improving Wikipedia articles about Asian Pacific American art and artists. Hosted at The Museum of Modern Art in collaboration with the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center and Wikimedia NYC, this meetup will focus on unearthing information about a creatively rich community that has historically been overlooked.
All are invited, with no specialized knowledge of the subject or Wikipedia editing experience required. Please bring your laptop and power cord; we will provide research resources, WiFi, and a list of suggested topics. Come early to see the exhibition Yoko Ono: One Woman Show, 1960–1971 during its final week.
This event kicks off a monthlong series of #WikiAPA meetups across the U.S. For more information about the #WikiAPA series, please visit smithsonianapa.org/wiki or follow #WikiAPA on Twitter.
Admission to the edit-a-thon is free, but please RSVP.
The Museum organizes a wide range of edit-a-thons, in which participants communally create and update Wikipedia entries on a given topic. Tutorials for beginner Wikipedians, reference materials, and refreshments are provided. Bring a laptop, power cord, and ideas for entries that need updating or creation. The editing-averse are always welcome to stop by to show their support.
