Dear all,

Apologies for cross-posting!

This is the last call for node events for the 2015 Art+Feminism edit-a-thon. One of our co-founders recently wrote an article for ACRLog (http://acrlog.org/2015/12/15/why-glam-wiki-wikipedia-and-galleries-libraries-archives-and-museums/) on some of the benefits of developing a Wikipedia program at your institution, including enhancing discoverability of your digital collections and engaging with your local community online. Hosting an Art+Feminism edit-a-thon is a great place to start!

Last year, over 1500 participants at over 75 locations around the world participated in the second annual Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon, resulting in the creation of nearly 400 new pages and significant improvements to 500 articles on Wikipedia. The 3rd Annual Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon (http://art.plusfeminism.org/edit-a-thons/) will take place at the Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Education and Research Building at MoMA, 4 West 54 Street, on Saturday, March 5, 2016. Do you want to join participants in Stockholm, Los Angeles, Utrecht, Toronto, Paris, Boston, Louisville, Mexico City, Detroit and Amsterdam in organizing your own satellite event? Please contact info at art.plusfeminism.org if you want to get involved! This year, we're able to provide funding for food and childcare on a first-come, first-serve basis, so don't hesitate to be in touch.

We look forward to hearing from you!

The Art+Feminism team (Siân Evans + Jackie Mabey + Michael Mandiberg)
