March 11, 2017: Art+Feminism Edit-a-thon at Minneapolis Central Library[edit]

Join us for communal updating of Wikipedia entries on art and feminism. People of all gender identities and expressions welcomed and encouraged to attend. No prior editing experience is necessary; training and resources will be provided. If you have a laptop, please bring it.

This edit-a-thon is presented in association with Art+Feminism.

Reverse chronology?[edit]

Maybe this page would be more intuitive if the 2018 events were at the top, rather than all the way at the bottom? It's always a bit confusing to have to scroll through 12 years of history (which is impressive, though!) to get to the latest event.--Pharos (talk) 17:22, 23 January 2018 (UTC)

I've attempted a 2018-first chronology, after a few people agreed with it at the recent meetup. Feel free to readjust as the local community sees fit.--Pharos (talk) 20:57, 31 May 2018 (UTC)

May 2018[edit]

Pharos and I have discussed by email a meetup when we will be in Minneapolis, Sunday, May 20, afternoon/evening. Art-A-Whirl, an open studio tour in Northeast Minneapolis, is also that weekend. Who would be interested? Recommendations for a coffee house or restaurant in Northeast? I really like Anchor Fish and Chips, but there are many others. Jonathunder (talk) 16:50, 11 May 2018 (UTC)

Count me in. I have no particular opinion on meeting place, though. -McGhiever (talk) 17:00, 11 May 2018 (UTC)
Sunday evening works for me but something closer to southwest Minneapolis/Edina would be a better location for Janice Lurie. I love Anchor Fish and Chips but Northeast will be packed because of ArtAWhirl. Barnes and Nobles in Edina is open until 9 PM and has a good restaurant/coffee bar with wifi. Open to whatever works.

What will meeting be about? How long? 4 to 6 PM? Should we check to see if we could meet in Mia's library? Sjacobsen1 (talk) 20:13, 11 May 2018 (UTC)
According to the Minneapolis Institute of Art website, their library is not open on Sundays and the museum closes at 5 p.m. Perhaps someone has connections to MIA or MCAD and can ask about special arrangements. Jonathunder (talk) 14:49, 12 May 2018 (UTC)
Two of the people here actually work for with MIA. We should be able to get a response on the library's availability by tomorrow.--Pharos (talk) 13:08, 13 May 2018 (UTC)
4 to 6 would work for me too JLLurie (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 20:29, 11 May 2018 (UTC)

We've started a meetup page here, please RSVP and add to the agenda: Wikipedia:Meetup/Minnesota/May 2018 Minnesota User Group Meeting.--Pharos (talk) 14:31, 14 May 2018 (UTC)

Look forward to seeing everyone today at the museum! Glad to join from New York.--Pharos (talk) 16:38, 20 May 2018 (UTC)
