Welcome! East of Borneo is hosting an "Unforgetting L.A." Wikipedia edit-a-thon.
What: Unforgetting L.A. Meetup #4
When: Saturday, June 21, 2014, Noon - 5pm
Where: 356 S. Mission Rd. 90033 (map)
Beginners welcome! We'll provide training for new editors and orientations will be offered every hour on the hour.
What to bring: Your laptop, power adapter, and any reference materials you'd like to work from or share.
Focus: This next meetup in East of Borneo's Unforgetting L.A. series will focus on the history of local artists spaces and publications. Though we are primarily interested in visual art and related fields—architecture, design, film, music, education, etc.—you are welcome to work on anything you like.
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)

Since July 2013, Unforgetting LA is a series of Wikipedia edit-a-thons to build a better online history of art in Southern California. We meet throughout the year at local galleries, museums, and nonprofit art spaces. Previous hosts include the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles and the MAK Center for Art and Architecture. Unforgetting L.A. is organized by East of Borneo, an online magazine of contemporary art and its history as considered from Los Angeles.
