Dear Cascadian Wikimedians,
Hi! I recently joined the group and wanted to introduce myself: my name is
Luiza, I'm a library and information science grad student at the UW in
Seattle. Originally from Brazil, I have a background in Art Librarianship
and a particular interest in computer-supported collaboration tools (even
though my Wikipedia editing skills are still very rough).
I’m planning on organizing an Art+Feminism edit-a-thon at the UW in early
March (the 4th or the 11th, depending on confirmation of the location). As
a way to make the event salient to our community, the idea is to focus on
editing entries related to Indigenous art and Indigenous women artists. I’d
love to enlist your expertise in organizing the event and invite the group
to be an affiliated sponsor.
Please let me know if you are interested in getting involved. Any
suggestions and recommendations are more than welcome!
