Join us in listening to a panel of speakers discuss feminist and Indigenous citation practices (TBA), and participating in some communal Wikipedia editing. As in the past years, we continue to address the gaps in information and within the editing community of the Wikiverse to center the work of women, feminist, Indigenous, queer, non-binary, and immigrant art and artists. This year, we will be working together on the creation and expansion of pages for Vancouver artists who are under-represented on Wikipedia.
We will provide tutorials for the beginner Wikipedian, as well as direction on where to get started. Feel free to bring your own art + feminism related wikipedia editing project ideas, or partake in a collective effort towards editing pages for local artist(s)!
People of all gender identities and expressions are invited to participate.
Art+Feminism edit-a-thons are spaces where we agree to work together to break down our implicit and explicit biases not only on Wikipedia but also in our interactions with one another and our fellow editors. It also means we agree to hold ourselves and others accountable for the ways we either contribute or subtract from safe and brave spaces. We point out harm when we see it and we work within community to speak up when/if we see event attendees experiencing microaggressions, unfair and/or biased treatment, and inequitable exclusion.
