If you haven't seen this already, Seattle's Jacob Lawrence Gallery is
hosting an Art + Feminism event this weekend. I connected briefly with one
of the organizers about it and she said she'd like to have news of the
event spread widely -- and would especially welcome more experienced
editors to attend.
They are advertising via Facebook, the event listing is here:
Wikipedia Edit-a-thon: NW Coast Indigenous Womxn Artists + Art
Their plan is to host an Art + Feminism event every quarter, which is
awesome. (Possible Cascadia partnership?)
I am out of town this weekend otherwise I'd totally be there. Will have to
go to the next one in early-ish 2018.
Apologies for cross-posting, looks like this can be circulated widely.

Subject: [GLAM] Wikimedian in Residence position at University of Virginia
I'm happy to announce that a one-year position for a Wikimedian in
Residence is open in Charlottesville at the Data Science Institute
(DSI) at the University of Virginia (UVA).
It is aimed at fostering the interaction between the university - students,
researchers, librarians, research administrators and others
- and the Wikimedia communities and platforms. As such, the project will
work across Wikimedia projects and UVA subdivisions, and experience in such
contexts will be valued.
More details about the position via
For more details about the institute, see http://dsi.virginia.edu/ .
I am working for the DSI (as a researcher) and shall be happy to address
any questions or suggestions on the matter (including collaboration with
other Wikimedian in Residence projects), preferably on-wiki or via my work
email (in CC).
Please feel free to pass this on to your networks.
Thanks and cheers,
