►a'21: Queer Feminist Interventions in Filling Open Resource Gaps: Wiki Edit-a-thon_amberPlatform
For this event we are focusing on artistic practices that revision existing mythologies and by unraveling these dominating narratives re-tell them from a queer / feminist perspective.
:: ABOUT THIS EVENT (EN / AR) ::
Wikimedia Community User Group Turkey (WMTR) and Amber Platform will host an online event Art + Feminism edit-a-thon. Edit-a-thon will allow us to create content on feminist / queer visual artists from around the world to be accessible in Turkish language, increasing the visibility and recognition of their practices. For this event we are focusing on artistic practices that revision existing mythologies and by unraveling these dominating narratives re-tell them from a queer / feminist perspective.Wikimedia Community User Group Program Turkey will do a presentation for 40 minutes of Wikipedia's five cornerstone philosophies, verifiability and registration process will be described in the valence concepts. A study will be conducted with an English-speaking group for artists who have titles in English but who lac ka content in Turkish. An archive and resource creation work will be carried out in connection with Turkish artists who do not have a title with participants who do not speak English. There will be a proposed list of artists, but participants will have the freedom to create content about the artists they want.
