Articles to work on[edit]

Suggestions from Art+Feminism[edit]

This is a good place to find international topics to write on.

Canadian Women Artists[edit]

The following list of Canadian women artists is intended as a starting point; please feel free to add to it or annotate as articles are created. The focus on Canadian artists fits with the strengths of our resources and knowledge in Toronto, but please feel free to work on international topics as well. Note that there are many ways to define "Canadian". Many of these artists may identify as other than Canadian or hyphenated-Canadians. Links in blue are existing articles which can be improved and/or expanded. Links in red are articles that do not yet exist and can be created.
