DC Art and Feminism 2020 - Remote Article Creation Initiative

All in-person edit-a-thons associated with the DC Art and Feminism 2020 campaign were recently cancelled or postponed due to the Covid-19 outbreak, but it's not too late to reach some of the campaign's goals.

Each participating institution has identified three articles that they would like to see created or improved over the next few weeks. We invite you to access and edit the work list via the Outreach Dashboard. Useful resources that were provided by participating institutions have also been included below. Please feel free to use them when creating new articles.

Wikipedia Policies[edit]

Wikimedia Affiliates[edit]

Wikimedia movement affiliates model
Wikimedia chapters are independent organizations founded to support and promote the Wikimedia projects in a specified geographical region (in most cases, a country). Like the Wikimedia Foundation, they aim to "empower and engage people around the world to collect and develop educational content under a free license or in the public domain, and to disseminate it effectively and globally". There are currently 39 chapters, with at least one on every inhabited continent., i.e. Wikimedia DC
Wikimedia thematic organizations
Thematic organizations are incorporated independent non-profits representing the Wikimedia movement and supporting work focused on a specific theme, topic, subject or issue within or across countries and regions. i.e., Wikimedia Medicine.
User groups
Wikimedia user groups are intended to be simple and flexible affiliates that are an alternative to chapters and thematic organizations - which require more formal requirements. User groups are highly valued as equal players in the Wikimedia movement, i.e., Art+Feminism
