Indigenous Arts Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon

Saturday March 28, 12 - 5 pm (talk and tutorial at 12:30)
E.P. Taylor Library & Archives, Art Gallery of Ontario

Please join the Edward P. Taylor Library & Archives and friends for a Wikipedia edit-a-thon on Indigenous arts and artists. Our aim is to put the AGO’s thousands of artist files, books, and magazines to use as reference material to build Wikipedia content on topics related to Indigenous arts from across Turtle Island. Collaborators include Wanda Nanibush, AGO; Jamie Lee Morin and Desmond Wong, University of Toronto; artist Zeesy Powers; and Stacy Allison-Cassin, York University.

No Wikipedia editing experience is necessary – there will be a tutorial and one-on-one coaching available.  We will have a few laptops available, but please bring one if you are able. You can create a Wikipedia account in advance and sign up on the event Dashboard, or we can help you do both those things at the event. There will be snacks.

Children are welcome at the event!

Participants are encouraged to attend Artist’s Talk: Tanya Tagaq with Heather Igloliorte, happening at 2 pm. A block of tickets will be reserved for Edit-A-Thon attendees.

For requests for Verbal Description, American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation and/or live captioning for online and onsite programming, please provide three weeks notice in advance of the event date. The AGO will make every effort to provide accommodation for requests made with less than three weeks notice. Please note that automated captioning is available for all online programs. For onsite visits, the AGO offers these supports for an accessible visit. Please contact us to make a request for these or other accessibility accommodations. Learn more about accessibility at the AGO.
