    Feminist and Queer Art Wikipedia Edit-a-thon

    Please join us for a Feminist and Queer Art Wikipedia Edit-a-thon, to be held on Saturday, September 13, 2014 from noon–4pm at the Independent Publishing Resource Center (IPRC), located at 1001 SE Division (97202). Prior Wikipedia editing is not required; assistance will be available the day of the event. Female editors are particularly encouraged to attend. Participants should bring their own laptops and power cords.

  • Feminist WIkipedia Edit-A-Thon

    Anyone can edit Wikipedia—but less than 10 percent of people who actually do edit the world's largest encyclopedia are women. At this event, people of all genders can learn how to edit Wikipedia for the very first time or put their existing open source skills to use in the company of nerdy friends. Also featured: delicious cookies!

    We'll be focusing on adding and improving the entries for queer and feminist artists and writers. Have someone in mind whose Wikipedia entry you'd like to work on!

    If you're coming, try to bring a laptop. There are also a couple computers at the IPRC we can use.

    Hosted by Sarah Mirk and Recess Gallery, with much-appreciated editing help from Jason Moore, as part of the OROR art and technology festival. Hopefully some of the fine people attending XOXO Festival will come, too!

    The Future for Indie Lit, Comics, and Graphic Storytelling

    It’s an undeniable trend: every day, more and more people are reading books and comics on their phones, e-readers and tablets. Rather than disappearing, though, physical books and comics are evolving into more highly-designed art objects. Hosted by the Independent Publishing Resource Center, this conversation will involve a vibrant group of Portland-based writers, zinesters, small press publishers and comics artists, all of whom are thriving within the intersections of traditional printing and digital publishing.

    This event is part of Wild: Portland, an exploration of the frontier of art, technology and culture.
