Art and Feminism in the Philippines 2022

March 15th, 2022 - June 15th, 2022
Naga City, Philippines
8:00am — 12:00pm CTT
Wiki Advocates Philippines

The aim is to recruit more volunteers to engage in the movement and inspire them to devote their skills to developing the Wiki projects. The two target projects (Tagalog and Central Bikol Wikiquote) are still in incubator status and we aim to develop it into an official wiki project with its own domain.  We also intend to involve the local community of artists in contributing their works for the Wikimedia Commons while at the same time promoting feminism through their art pieces. The online exhibit was done during the previous A+F campaign in the Philippines however we wanted to immerse more artists in the movement and give them an opportunity to explore the possibility of contributing their works as a free online resource.  Lastly,  in-person interviews will be conducted to document the creative process of the artists. This will be in a form of a video presentation and will be uploaded on Wikimedia Commons. You may visit our event page for more information.
