Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon
Saturday, March 24th
Panel Discussion from 11 am - noon, Editing noon - 5 pm, Tutorials at 12:30 pm and 2 pm
The Art Gallery of Ontario Library & Archives celebrates International Women's Day by hosting a satellite event of the 5th annual international Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon. This event is a chance to put the AGO's thousands of artist files and books to excellent use as reference material for building up Wikipedia content on topics related to art and feminism.
The event will kick off with a panel discussion exploring collaboration as a feminist strategy. Amy Furness, the Head of the E.P. Taylor Library & Archives will moderate the discussion featuring Toronto-based artists Madelyne Beckles, Amy Wong, Johanna Householder, and FAG (Feminist Art Gallery). The editing starts at noon.
People of all gender identities and expressions are welcomed and encouraged to attend. No Wikipedia editing experience is necessary – there will be tutorials and one-on-one coaching available. Come and take part, or just come have some snacks and cheer us on.
Please bring a laptop and create a Wikipedia account in advance.
Children are welcome at the event!
An AGO children's art instructor will be offering two free hands-on mixed media studio workshops available for children aged 5-12 whose caregiver is participating in the Edit-A-Thon. The studio workshops will run from 11 am - 1 pm and 2-4 pm, with a one hour lunch break.
Preregistration for workshops required by March 20. Register for free childrens' workshops now.
