To support our growing global community, in late 2019 we introduced online Community Hours on a variety of topics in the efforts of ongoing and peer learning. If you have an idea for or would be interested in facilitating one in the future, please contact us.
We have two exciting Community Hours coming up that we’d love you to join us for!
Community Hours: Call to Action Art Commission REMIX!
Monday, March 28 at 4p UTC
Let the Art+Feminism Call to Action Commission inspire your own work! You can remix Wikimedia Commons images into brand-new artwork—and you can even upload your own work to Commons for the next person to remix. Join Sara Clugage to show you how to turn the Call to Action images into embroidery patterns that you can use to embellish things like clothes, pillows, or protest banners.
Suggested supplies for this project: an embroidery hoop, a needle, thread in the colors and textures you want, a piece of fabric, and scissors. (pictured above)
Materials Reimbursement: Art+Feminism is able to offer up to $20 USD reimbursement to offset costs of materials to participate. A form will be available at the workshop to submit receipts. If having to purchase your materials and wait for reimbursement creates a financial burden, please email email@example.com for other options.
Community Hours: Add your event data to Wikidata! April 9th, 2022 at 2pm UTC
Since 2020 organizers have added information about their events to Wikidata, including location of the event, number of participants, event date and dashboard link. This has allowed Art+Feminism to properly structure annual campaign metrics so that the data can be queried and visualized (for instance, displayed on maps).
In this community hours, join Mohammed Sadat Abdulai as he demonstrates how you can add information about an event to Wikidata and addresses any challenges you might have.
Data/Internet Connectivity Reimbursement
For Community Hours attendees who reside in regions, where expenses for private internet/data costs are prohibitively expensive, Art+Feminism is able to offer a $5 USD stipend to offset costs and encourage participation. The form will be available during each session. For questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
