Celebrating International Women’s Day by adding more women artists to the Hebrew Wikipedia.
As part of the International Art + Feminism Initiative and in collaboration with Wikimedia Israel, Artport is pleased to be participating for the third time, for a day of content writing on female artists.
Wikipedia has become a major source of knowledge, though when looking for information about personalities in Hebrew, less than 20% are about women. The Art + Feminism initiative aims to change just that, and write history together as we want to read it.
In the program: Getting to know Wikipedia and learning basic rules, writing new content, translating existing texts to Hebrew, and also tea, cookies and oranges.
Very important before the workshop –
1. Open a Wikipedia user
2. Bring a laptop (if we haven’t – we’ve updated it beforehand and we might be able to help)
3. Think about an artist you want to write about or translate in search of materials in advance
4.Sign up for link so we know you’re coming and send you all the details and updates
