September, 2021 - March, 2022 - 5 PM to 7 PM / every last Thursday of the month
ARTEXTE Information Centre, the RCAAQ / Réseau Art Actuel and Repaire – Regroupement de pairs des arts indépendants de recherche et d’expérimentation (previously known as the Conseil québécois des arts médiatiques, the Regroupement des arts interdisciplinaires du Québec) are partnering to launch a second series of Wikipedia contribution which is 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.
The Contemporary Arts X Wiki Workshops take place online every last Thursday of the month from 5 to 7pm :
- September 30, 2021 : ecosystems, ecology and nature
- October 28, 2021 : the body as a political space
“Vast and multifaceted, the body is both subject and author. Used by artists to explore issues of identity, power and beauty, the body also manifests itself as a political space to explore, and even challenge its limits, real and artificial”.
- January 27, 2022 : commons
- February 24, 2022 : open invitation to Vie des arts
The workshop format is informal and may include a discussion with a guest speaker, an introduction to the contribution on Wikipedia and discussion periods between participants and with the organizers. Representatives from Artexte and RCAAQ and Repaire will be there to virtually 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!
