I’m organizing an edit-a-thon next Sunday at a gallery in San Francisco
centered around the theme of Art and Bureaucracy. This event is part of art
show I am part of called Office Work <http://officework.space/> that is
exploring the intersections of art, bureaucracy, labor, and knowledge.
We’ll be editing and adding articles related to art movements and
administration, organizational systems, offices, bureaucracy, labor theory,
and more, and helping newcomers familiarize themselves with Wikipedia’s
guidelines to help them begin contributing to the encyclopedia.
Here are the details and link to meet up page, we’d love to see you there!
If anyone on this list is interested in participating as a point-person for
helping newcomers get acclimated, please send me an email.
What: Art + Bureaucracy Edit-a-thon
Date: Sunday 5 April
Time: 1 – 5
Location: StoreFrontLab <http://www.storefrontlab.org/> – 337 Shotwell St.,
Meet up page:
Note that as part of the surrounding art exhibition, we’ll also be taking
surveys from people during the event about their experiences with Wikipedia
(as readers and editors) that will then be shared in the gallery and
summarized in the outcomes section of the meet up page.
