Our Vision + Values

Vision

From coffee shops and community centers to the largest museums and universities in the world, Art+Feminism leads a do-it-yourself and do-it-with-others campaign that teaches people of all gender identities and expressions to edit Wikipedia.

We envision dismantling supremacist systems and creating pathways for everyone to participate in writing (and righting) history. Informed by critical pedagogy and intersectional feminist organizing principles, Art+Feminism mobilizes, trains and supports a growing global community that collectively creates and updates articles on Wikipedia, adds images to Wikimedia Commons, expands WikiData entries, and more.

Values

We believe in the power of the arts. We believe that art is fundamental to flourishing, open societies.

We are a community of many feminisms. We believe in their collective power to challenge oppressive structures and create new, liberating ones.

We create safer and braver spaces that are caring, equitable, pro-black, trans-affirming, ability-elevating and all-around anti-oppressive. We find joy in our community, knowing it will sustain us in our work.

We commit to knowledge sharing and creation on a global scale, highlighting voices and stories which are often unheard. We also embrace our own learning and unlearning of knowledge so that we may dream of new ways of being and doing, individually and collectively.
