VIRTUAL: Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon
Join us online from 1:00-4:00pm on Friday, March 27th, 2020 for a virtual kickoff of Tucson’s Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon. This kickoff event marks the start of a month-long, community-wide effort towards editing Wikipedia pages concerning womxn and non-binary artists, makers, poets, photographers. Our collective goal is to improve coverage of womxn, non-binary and femme-identified people and the arts on Wikipedia and encourage diverse editorship. The kickoff event will include tutorials for the beginner Wikipedian, lightning talks and collaborative group editing. People of all gender identities and expressions are invited to participate, with a special welcome to womxn, non-binary, and femme people. This event is free and open to the general public as well as the University of Arizona community and runs from March 27th through April 30th, 2020.
Editors who register before or during the on-going event will have the opportunity to connect with other editors and get support throughout the month as well as attend an in-person keynote presentation and performance by local artist and activist, Natalie Brewster Nguyen. Food will be provided at the family-friendly celebratory event, to be scheduled at a later date.
This event is generously sponsored and co-hosted by CATalyst Studios, the Center for Creative Photography, the Poetry Center, the Department of History, the Public History Collaborative, and the Wikimedia Foundation, making it free and open to the general public as well as the University of Arizona community.
