Description

FREE

Squeaky Wheel is proud to participate in the Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon! This worldwide event asks writers, editors, and enthusiasts all over the world to log on to Wikipedia and contribute to the world’s encyclopedia by adding, editing, and expanding pages of women artists.

At Squeaky Wheel, we will focus on women in media art, and are very excited to be collaborating with three essential media arts distributors who will provide special access to their collections: Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI) NYC, Video Data Bank Chicago, and Vtape Toronto.

Co-presented by Buffalo State College’s Women & Gender Studies Interdisciplinary Minor and UB Department of Art and The Department of Media Study, SUNY at Buffalo.


About Art+Feminism

Art+Feminism began as a conversation between four friends who wanted to create meaningful changes to the body of knowledge available about feminism and the arts on Wikipedia. We had no idea that what started as a small gathering would mushroom into a global initiative.

Why? | Wikimedia Foundation found that less than 10% of its contributors identify as female. While the reasons for the gender gap are up for debate, the practical effect of the disparity is not: content is skewed by the lack of female participation. This represents an alarming absence in an important repository of shared knowledge.
