This event is free, but please RSVP
Join us for the sixth annual Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon, an all-day communal updating of Wikipedia entries on subjects related to gender, art, and feminism. The edit-a-thon kicks off with a conversation exploring visibility and vulnerability, featuring writer and archivist Che Gossett, performance artist, writer, and educator Alok Vaid-Menon, and Simone Browne, an associate professor in the Department of African and African Diaspora Studies at the University of Texas at Austin. The discussion is moderated by Danielle A. Jackson, a curatorial assistant in MoMA’s Department of Media and Performance. This event will be live-streamed.
The day will feature Gallery Sessions, a Wikimedia Photobooth hosted by Black Lunch Table, and breakout sessions on how to take care of yourself when dealing with racism and genderphobia on the Internet, and deleting or challenging Wikipedia articles. Communal editing tables will be hosted by AfroCROWD and POWarts. Tutorials for beginner Wikipedians, reference materials, childcare, and refreshments will be provided throughout the day. Please bring your laptop, power cord, and ideas for entries that need updating or creation.
Across the street, New York Public Library’s 53rd Street Branch will host Drag Queen Story Hour and offer a zine-making workshop.
