Taking place at Artexte every last Thursday of the month
January 30, February 27, March 26, April 30 and May 28, 2020 from 4 pm to 7 pm
ARTEXTE, the Conseil québécois des arts médiatiques – CQAM, the RAIQ – Regroupement des arts interdisciplinaires du Québec and the RCAAQ / Réseau Art Actuel are partnering to organize a series of Wikipedia contribution events between January and May 2020.
The Contemporary Arts X Wiki Workshops take place at Artexte every last Thursday of the month. Participants have access to Artexte’s collection, which includes documentation on the visual arts from 1965 to the present, with a particular focus on Canadian and Quebec practices. Contributors who wish to participate virtually are also encouraged to do so! These workshops are designed to introduce the artistic community to Wikimedia projects and to document the practices, artists and organizations that make up the Quebec and canadian contemporary arts ecosystem.
Representatives from Artexte and the CQAM, RAIQ and RCAAQ will be there to guide those who need a helping hand and to have a chat with you between contributions.
Everyone interested in Quebec and Canadian arts and the Wikimedia Foundation’s projects is welcome: artists, cultural workers, researchers, amateurs of contemporary arts, and curious people! In addition, people under-represented in Wikipedia, especially women, people from LGBTQ2S+ communities and people from Indigenous, ethnocultural or racialized communities are encouraged to participate!
