When: Sunday, March 9, 2014, 11am - 6pm

Where: Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (MOCA), 250 S. Grand Ave. 90012 (downtown LA). We'll be working outside on the plaza.

What to bring: Your laptop, power adapter, and any reference materials you'd like to work from or share.

Focus: Meet up with online art magazine East of Borneo at MOCA for a Wikipedia edit-a-thon to build a more accurate and diverse online history of art in Southern California. This third meetup in their Unforgetting L.A. edit-a-thon series will focus on the 30 years since MOCA’s inception—L.A. art of the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s. Participate for as little or as long as you like. Beginners welcome! This is MOCA's first edit-a-thon, and the museum is really excited to engage the Wikipedia community! Come meet their museum staff and learn some mad technology, research, and Wiki skills in the process!

As always, you do not need to be an experienced Wikipedia editor in order to attend. But if you are, please consider volunteering your expertise to this or any future Unforgetting L.A. meetup by contacting StaceyEOB(talk)

FYI, PBS will likely be coming to film part of this event in the morning. I assume you can make arrangements if you don't want to be on camera, but just wanted to give you all a heads up. Calliopejen1 (talk) 18:37, 3 March 2014 (UTC)

Background[edit]

Since July 2013, Unforgetting LA is a series of Wikipedia edit-a-thons to build a more accurate and diverse history of art in Southern California. It is a project of East of Borneo, an online magazine of contemporary art and its history as considered from Los Angeles. We meet 3-4 times per year at local galleries, museums, and nonprofit art spaces.
