Grand Luxe Hall
As a form of information activism for women, trans, and gender non-binary people and artists, Western Front Media Arts invites people of all genders and expressions to join our 6th Wikipedia Edit-a-thon. In solidarity with Art + Feminism events worldwide, this gathering will be a communal updating of Wikipedia’s entries to better reflect the spectrum of genders, alongside their 2019 campaign’s inclusion to speak towards experiences of cis and trans women, and gender non-binary people, in addition to its centering of voices for Black women, Indigenous women, queer women, immigrant women, and histories and knowledge systems of women from all backgrounds. Participants will be provided with reference materials and catalogues from our archives, tutorials for editing on Wikipedia, and refreshments. BYO laptop, power cord and ideas for entries that need updating or creation, or borrow from the house supply.
