~*Apologies for cross-posting*~

As the lead co-organizers of Art+Feminism, we believe the current political climate makes our work even more pressing: now more than ever we must gather together to improve Wikipedia and affirm work of women, people of color, immigrants, the LGBTQIA+ community and other marginalized peoples.

DON’T AGONIZE, ORGANIZE! The award winning, record breaking Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon is happening this March. Join us again or organize for the first time to improve Wikipedia and affirm the importance of the arts and intersectional feminisms.

There’s still time to hold an Edit-a-thon at your local university, artist run center, museum, community center, etc in the month of March! Art+Feminism Edit-a-thons address content and participation gaps by inviting people of all gender identities and expressions to gather for communal updating of Wikipedia entries related to art and feminism. The leadership collective supports Edit-a-thon organizers by: providing an organizer’s kit with suggested workflow, promotional and training materials, and more; funding to defray the costs of refreshments and childcare; and training and support.
