Art+Feminism is celebrating its tenth year in Houston with a symposium on Collective Action. During this year and this event, we’re reflecting on how communities have harnessed their collective power to address inequities and disenfranchisement.

The symposium is open to both virtual and in-person participants, open to both local and global attendees. It features Wikipedia editing workshops in collaboration with local cultural organizations, opportunities to make art, a Black Lunch Table Photo Booth, and interactive sessions with local organizers. Thanks to local partners Arte Público PressBlack Lunch Table, and SAID Pan-African Library.

The symposium will feature hybrid components, including a virtual keynote conversation with Paula Dominguez Font (Wikimedistas de Uruguay) and Mariana Fossatti (Whose Knowledge?). Virtual breakout sessions include a session around Wikipedia y las biografías de personas LGBTT+ guide’s original text and translation with Vic Sfriso (WMAR), Owen Blacker (Wikimedia LGBT+), and Sofia Stancioff (Art+Feminism). And the session: “Digital Remix: GIF’ing Wikimedia Commons” where we’ll be extending our recent workshop with A+F co-lead organizer, Medhavi Ghandi, “How to make Gifs.” Participants should review the preparation list and join us for an opportunity to remix some of your favorite visual art pieces into gifs.

Spanish interpretation will be provided to both in-person and virtual attendees. Please share any language preferences or dietary restrictions during registration.
