Community Care Continues

As the COVID-19 global pandemic continues, affecting regions of our international community in varying degrees, Art+Feminism wants to reiterate the importance of health and safety. We know that some members of our community live in places where there are few to no restrictions on movement: schools, museums, libraries and other places where events have been hosted in the past may be open. Whether or not these institutions are open because of successful public health work, we want to invite you into our practice of community care as we begin a new season of Art+Feminism events. As you prepare for Art+Feminism 2022, we encourage you to consider:

  • What is safest for the most vulnerable people who might want to attend your event?
  • What is safest for staff at venues where you’ve hosted your events?
  • What is safest for your community at large?
  • Accessibility needs of your community for virtual events. 

We encourage you to organize a virtual event as a way of minimizing risks for those who are most vulnerable. 

Also, we put at your disposal our resources for virtual event organizers:

Additionally, we encourage you to use the Wikimedia Foundation risk assessment tool for organizer’s to assess the safety measures for an in-person event.

If you won’t have  the capacity to organize an Art+Feminism Edit-a-thon, we encourage you to consider  other ways to be involved: 

No matter what, we value you as a member of this community. If you are unable to participate in any of these ways, we understand, and look forward to when we can actively engage with you again.
