This onsite event has been postponed. If you'd like to participate in our virtual edit-a-thon on Saturday, March 14, we’ll have support available via a dedicated Slack channel (#onlineediting) from 10:30 a.m.–4 p.m. EST. Additional resources are available on the Art+Feminism dashboard. Please join us!
Join us for the seventh annual Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon, an all-day communal updating of Wikipedia entries on subjects related to gender, art, and feminism. People of all gender identities and expressions are welcome and encouraged to attend, and no prior Wikipedia editing experience is required.
The day includes several Introduction to Editing Wikipedia training sessions (including one in Spanish), and opportunities to participate in Gallery Experiences, have your photo taken at the Wikimedia Photobooth hosted by Black Lunch Table, join communal editing tables hosted by AfroCROWD, POWarts, and Wiki Loves Pride, and enjoy complimentary lunch and refreshments at the end-of-day reception.
The day concludes with a panel discussion exploring the 2020 theme Art + Activism, featuring Carolyn Lazard, artist, and Betty Yu, artist and cofounder of Chinatown Art Brigade. The conversation will be moderated by Michelle Millar Fisher, Ronald C. and Anita L. Wornick Curator of Contemporary Decorative Arts at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and cofounder of Art + Museum Transparency.
You are welcome to come for the full day or drop by for whatever time you have. If you can’t attend in person, we encourage you to participate by editing from wherever you are.
Please bring a laptop, power cord, and ideas for entries that need updating or creation, as well as a reusable water bottle to help reduce waste. Library reference materials, loaner laptops, and complimentary refreshments will be available.
This event is free and open to the public, but we strongly urge you to RSVP to reserve your spot.
