Event description[edit]

Art+Feminism is a campaign improving coverage of cis and transgender women, feminism and the arts on Wikipedia. From coffee shops and community centers to the largest museums and universities in the world, Art+Feminism is a do-it-yourself and do-it-with-others campaign teaching people of all gender identities and expressions to edit Wikipedia.

History of The Black Lunch Table[edit]

The Black Lunch Table (BLT) is an ongoing collaboration between artists Jina Valentine (Fishantena (talk)) and Heather Hart (Heathart (talk)) which intends to fill holes in the documentation of contemporary art history. In its 10 year existence, the BLT has taken a variety of forms relating to this most recent iteration, in the form of the Wikipedia edit-a-thon. BLT’s aim is the production of discursive sites (at literal and metaphorical lunch tables), wherein cultural producers of color engage in critical dialogue on topics directly affecting our communities. They endeavor to create spaces, online and off, mirroring the activity and creativity present in sites where Blackness and Art are performed.

About Triangle Arts Association[edit]

Triangle is an artist-founded non-profit art institution in New York City, working locally and globally since 1982. Their programs emphasize research, dialogue and experimentation through residencies and public programs.

#VisibleWikiWomen challenge[edit]

Our friends at Whose Knowledge have a new campaign! We estimate that less than 20% of Wikipedia articles of important women have pictures. Black women are a fraction of that number. When women’s faces are missing from Wikipedia, that invisibility spreads. Half a billion people read Wikipedia every month, and it is the 5th most visited website in the world, so gaps in Wikipedia have a big impact on the broader internet. Women’s knowledge and contributions to the world are invisible in so many ways. Together, we can address this and make women more visible online!

Drawing Challenge[edit]

When you make drawings of a person based on photos, you can take them as inspiration or reference. But you must make sure that your drawing is not: - a reproduction:​ the same image but in a different mean, - a derivative work:​ a new work with many recognizable elements of the original Here's a guide.

Uploading photos[edit]

Photo story contest[edit]

As part of the #VisibleWikiWomen Challenge, Who's Knowledge is running a story contest! The aim of this contest is to share the stories behind the images of #VisibleWomenWomen. click here for details

Creating a new page[edit]

Wikipedia articles follow certain guidelines: the subjects should be notable according to Wikipedia standards and be covered in detail in good references from independent sources. Wikipedia is an encyclopediait is not a personal home page or a business list. Do not use content from other websites even if you, your school, or your boss owns them. If you choose to create the article with only a limited knowledge of the standards here, you should be aware that other editors may delete it if it's not considered appropriate.

To create full articles (as opposed to draft pages), your account must be at least 4 days (96 hours) old, and you must have made more than ten edits. Message us for help!


If you are fluent in another language you can help us by translating a page to English or an English page to your other language. Translation is not automatic. Learn more here.

Possible articles to edit[edit]

Suggested artist pages for revision and/or creation! This event-specific list focuses on important New York area visual artists of the African Diaspora who are under-represented on Wikipedia. Please add a name if you know someone appropriate who needs a page or needs editing. Please do not add an artist who has a substantial page. We are trying to create new pages and beef up under-represented ones.

  • Etherpad: BlackLunchTable - List the article you're working on in this live doc to keep track and avoid duplicate work!
  •   denotes Infobox is needed

These articles are suggested, be sure they qualify according to Wikipedia's NOTABILITY guidlines before you create a new page. Thanks!
