Hosted by Tangled Art + Disability, Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO), Bodies in Translation
Join the Edward P. Taylor Library & Archives, Tangled Art + Disability, and Bodies in Translation for a Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon to increase Wikipedia content on disability arts and artists in Canada. This event will take place virtually, with the opportunity to connect in the virtual networking space Gather Town. This edit-a-thon is part of Practicing the Social: Entanglements of Art and Justice, a free online arts-based gathering taking place January 20-22, 2022.
No Wikipedia editing experience is necessary – tutorials and suggested topics can be found ahead of time here and one-on-one coaching will be available during the Thursday session.You can create a Wikipedia account in advance and sign up on the event dashboard, or we can help you do both those things during the supported editing session.
The event will take place in the virtual networking space Gather Town. ASL and live chat options will be provided. Unfortunately, the Gather Town platform is not screen reader friendly. Therefore, access requests for this event can be made through the registration process, so that we have visual access ushers available to support you on your journey through this platform.
