Corita 101: Digital Literacy and Activism

On the occasion of Women’s History Month, The Corita Art Center will host a hands-on, virtual event centered around digital literacy and activism, on Saturday, March 26.

There is a significant gender gap on Wikipedia. These well-documented gender inequities are most apparent in the under-representation of women and non-binary artists on the website. They also contribute to a bias in content and language, and the erasure of knowledge and history. Let’s help change that!‍

Amber Berson, an advisor at Art+Feminism, will give a 45-minute presentation on the importance of not just how to edit but how to read Wikipedia, and the ways activism is helping to address the platform’s systemic biases. Next, Berson will lead a 45-minute workshop on how to edit the tenth most visited website in the world!

‍We hope that you will join us for this fun and low-key participatory event, open to people of all gender identities and expressions. No experience is necessary: simply join the Zoom meeting with your personal computer or tablet (*we are unable to accommodate mobile phones for the workshop component).
