Siân Evans is is organizing an Art and Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon at New York's Eyebeam Art + Technology Center on February 1, 2014. She needs help identifying women artists/feminist artists that should be included on Wikipedia or have their Wikipedia pages improved.
I need your help! In your research and instruction have you come across Wikipedia articles on women artists/feminist artists that are woefully lacking? Do you have any interest in organizing a satellite event on February 1st at your institution? Here’s what we need to get started:
· Suggested Topics (we’d like to focus on 20th/21st century art but are open to other suggestions, including related to art and technology)
· Articles needing creation
· Articles needing expansion and/or cleanup
· Suggestions for research materials
Alternatively, if you’re interested in hosting a satellite event, please also be in touch. You can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can find more information about the event (including locations of other satellite events, like that being held at National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington DC) at our Meet-up page (click here) or on Tumblr (click here).
