Event information[edit]

  • Date: Saturday, March 5, 2016
  • Time: noon – 5 p.m. CST
  • Organizers: Rochester Art Center
  • Location: PROJECT Feminist Space, Second Floor, 40 Civic Center Drive S.E., Rochester, MN 55904
  • What to bring: Your self, your own laptop computer, and any reference materials (books, etc) that you think would be useful.

Please RSVP through our Facebook event.

Don't have a computer? Not to worry! Past Art + Feminism Edit-a-thons have found that team editing with multiple folks who have specific roles (someone looking in the books, and reading source citation info, for example, while someone inputs the information on the computer, etc.) is very effective, so we'll pair you with a team.

Afterwards, celebrate a collaborative and productive day of continuing to increase Wikipedia's reflection of the voices of women, and join us on the Art Bus to St. Paul, where we'll attend the grand finale of The Guerrilla Girls Twin Cities Takeover, at the State Theatre!
