Collective Action! LADA Art+Feminism Edit-a-Thon

March 16th, 2023
London, E2 6LX , United Kingdom
11:00am — 5:00pm UTC
Live Art Development Agency
A group of women sitting around a table with laptops in front of them and books spread around. There are white bookshelves in the background covered in books and red and black photographs by Frank B on the wall.

As grassroots organising and worker power rise around the world, how are the works and practices of artist collectives, art workers and art-as-activism recorded and shared? From Museum worker strikes at the National Gallery, to the creative advocacy of Migrants in Culture, from Land Body Ecologies work on existential distress caused by environmental change to the direct-action feminist performances of Speaking of Imelda, co-operation, collectivity, and care are at the centre of today’s fights.

 Join us to edit and create Wikipedia articles that speak to the theme of Collective Action. We will use LADA’s study room collections, as well as online resources, academic articles, books and any other sources we can get our hands on.  

Please feel free to come for the whole day or drop in for an hour. We will give an introduction at the start of the session and after a lunch break, but there will be people on hand to support you and help you get started whenever you arrive. There will also be the option to join online and participate remotely. 

We recognise that the Covid-19 pandemic continues, and we take Covid safety seriously. We ask those attending in-person to test beforehand, and will provide free tests at the venue. We will also provide masks, and encourage those who can to wear them. The edit-a-thon will also have an online component, and people can participate virtually.
