Talk: Art and Feminism 2018: Women and Film

12 pm | Sun, March 25, 2018
Art of the Americas Building

Join LACMA and East of Borneo for a Wikipedia edit-a-thon and panel discussion addressing gender inequality in the film industry.

Art and Feminism is a global campaign to improve the coverage of women and the arts on Wikipedia, the world’s online encyclopedia. A 2011 survey by the Wikimedia Foundation found that fewer than 10% of Wikipedia’s editors identify as female, and its content is skewed by the lack of female participation. Let’s change that.

Beginners are welcome! The afternoon will kickoff with the panel discussion moderated by Dilcia Barrera, associate curator of film programs at LACMA at noon, followed by a Wikipedia training workshop at 2 pm to walk you step-by-step through the process of editing and creating new articles. Bring your own laptop and any books or other reference materials you’d like to work from or share. You may also search LACMA’s Balch Art Research Library catalog for additional resources.
