13 April @ Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery ·
Presented by UWA Cultural Precinct ·

Join us for ‘Feminist Futures: Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon & Panel Discussion’ for an afternoon of events exploring the overlap between feminism, art and archiving practices. The work of women, transgender and non-binary artists has been underrepresented within public art collections. While disrupting the white, cis-male art canon has been integral to the work of feminists for decades, what are some of the issues for those carrying on this work today?

PANEL DISCUSSION (1:00pm – 2:30pm)
Join a panel discussion featuring local artists and arts workers committed to questioning and challenging institutional collecting practices. Collectively, we will consider ways feminism might be used as a toolkit to strive for more meaningful collections.

Speakers:
Aisyah Sumito
Dunja Rmandic
Gemma Weston
Sharyn Egan
Moderated by Megan Hyde

ART+FEMINISIM WIKIPEDIA EDIT-A-THON (11:30am – 3:30pm)
Join us at any stage throughout the afternoon for a Wikipedia Edit-a-thon! While anyone can contribute content to the world’s largest encyclopaedia, only 9% of contributors identify as female and less than 1% as trans or non-binary. Help improve those statistics by learning how to create and edit Wikipedia content. Some resources will be available on artists from Western Australia.
