Join us for an all-day communal updating of Wikipedia entries on subjects related to art and feminism. The day begins at 10:00 a.m. with a conversation about Internet activism, featuring writer Joanne McNeil and Data & Society Research Institute Fellow Zara Rahman, and moderated by Kimberly Drew, social media manager for The Metropolitan Museum of Art and creator of the Black Contemporary Art Tumblr. Afternoon breakout groups will engage in focused discussions about intersectionality and librarianship, power structures in notability guidelines on Wikipedia, and radical archives.
This conversation will be live-streamed.
Throughout the day, we will provide tutorials for beginner Wikipedians, reference materials, childcare, and refreshments. Training sessions are scheduled for 11:30 a.m. and 1:00, 2:30, and 4:00 p.m.
Bring your laptop, power cord, and ideas for entries that need updating or creation. People of all gender identities and expressions are welcome. For the editing-averse, we welcome you to stop by to show your support and join us for the kickoff panel discussion.
For childcare, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org by March 7 and include the first names and number of children requiring care, their ages, and what time you plan on attending.
The event is free, but please RSVP.
