Abstract (up to 300 words to describe your proposal)
As we write this, we are most of the way through March 2017, and thus the fourth annual Art+Feminism Wikipedia Editathon. Over the course of the last four years, organizers on all six inhabited continents have held 500+ events which have brought together thousands of editors, who in turn have created thousands of articles. We are proposing a panel presentation that will bring together organizers from around the world to present about their experiences organizing Art+Feminism events. This panel will both provide an opportunity for global organizers to share experiences and knowledge, and also share the context and texture of this successful campaign with the larger Wikimedia community.
We anticipate 4-6 presentations of 6-8 minutes length, followed by discussion/Q&A. The final composition of the panel will be determined once we know who will be present in Montreal. At present we have interest from the following, and will likely learn about others who are attending and may wish to present (* denotes confirmed attendance):
  • Amber Berson (Montreal, Canada)*
  • Amy Furness (Toronto, Canada)
  • Colette Hayes (San Francisco, CA)
  • Mohammed Sadat Abdulai (Accra, Ghana)*
  • Nora Almeida (Napplicable) & Jen Hoyer (Reginald dwight), Interference Archive, Brooklyn NY
  • kvardek du (Paris, France)*
  • Mary Mark Ockerbloom (Philadelphia, PA)
One or more of the Art+Feminism co-lead organizers (the authors of this proposal) will introduce the session, provide brief perspective on the global effort, and moderate the panel.
What will attendees take away from this session?
  • Greater understanding of Art+Feminism
  • Greater understanding of the regional and cultural differences in organizing offline events
Theme of presentation
WikiCulture & Community (but also a lot of GLAM too)
For workshops and discussions, what level is the intended audience?
All audiences
Length of session (if other than 25 minutes, specify how long)
55 minutes (Panel length)
Will you attend Wikimania if your submission is not accepted?
Some of us will, but maybe not all of us.
