Art+Feminism x MoMA

Art+Feminism’s sixth-annual Wikipedia Edit-a-thon will take place at the Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Education and Research Building, The Museum of Modern Art, New York, 4 West 54 Street, on Saturday, March 2, 2019 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. People of all gender identities and expressions are encouraged to attend.

This year’s event 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, Curatorial Assistant, Department of Media and Performance Art, The Museum of Modern Art.

The edit-a-thon will feature Gallery Sessions, a Wikimedia Photobooth hosted by Black Lunch Table, a discussion of the development of the Department of Education via materials in the library archives, and breakout sessions on creating boundaries to combat implicit and explicit bias and deleting or challenging Wikipedia articles. Communal editing tables will be hosted by AfroCROWD and POWarts.

Across the street, New York Public Library’s 53rd Street Branch will host Drag Queen Story Hour, screen training videos on Wikipedia editing, and offer a zine-making workshop.

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. 

For childcare, please contact digital_learning@moma.org by February 27, and let us know the first names and number of children requiring care, their ages, and what time you plan on attending. The event is free.
