Wikimedia’s gender trouble is well-documented. While the reasons for the gender gap are up for debate, the practical effect of this disparity is not: content is skewed by the lack of female participation. This represents an alarming absence in an important repository of shared knowledge. Let’s change that! Drop by the A+F Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon, learn how to edit Wikipedia and make a few changes of your own! This year, we’re partnering with the American Cultures program and expanding the scope to highlight the theme of race and justice. We are now calling it the Art+Feminism+Race+Justice Wikipedia Edit-a-thon.

 

  • People of all gender identities and expressions welcome.

  • Bring a laptop.

  • Drop in for half an hour or stay for the whole afternoon.

  • No editing experience necessary; we’ll provide training and assistance.

    • Optional: Training sessions at 12:30 & 2:30.

    • Get a headstart! Create an editing account ahead of time.

  • Refreshments will be provided.

Hands-On 11: Twentysix Artists’ Books


Artists’ books defy conventional “reading” and involve the viewer through sight, touch and physical manipulation. Ed Ruscha’s Twentysix Gasoline Stations was seminal in bringing the concept of artists’ books into common consciousness. The Environmental Design Library will have several Ruscha books on hand and a number of other derivative and related works for you to touch, turn pages, and explore.
