International community closing the information gap about gender, feminism, and the arts on the internet.
Caroline is the 2020–21 Regional Ambassador for Art+Feminism in the Oceania Region. Her role includes supporting event organisers to host Wikipedia events and connecting people across the Region, including Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific.
From coffee shops and community centres to the largest museums and universities in the world, Art+Feminism leads a do-it-yourself and do-it-with-others campaign that teaches people of all gender identities and expressions to edit Wikipedia. We envision dismantling supremacist systems and creating pathways for everyone to participate in writing (and righting) history. Informed by critical pedagogy and intersectional feminist organising principles, Art+Feminism mobilises, trains and supports a growing global community that collectively creates and updates articles on Wikipedia, adds images to Wikimedia Commons, expands WikiData entries, and more.
Anyone and everyone regardless of experience, gender, or background, is welcome to attend or organise Art+Feminism events. These events are held year-round typically at museums, coffee shops, colleges, community centres, and elsewhere, though the majority of Art+Feminism edit-a-thons take place in March. Other events include meet ups, reading networks, virtual edit-a-thons and community advocacy initiatives.
Caroline has organised and facilitated multiple Art+Feminism events with venues and organisations including the National Gallery of Victoria, State Library of Victoria, Women’s Art Register and Trocadero Artspace. Held in collaboration with Wikimedia Australia, an independent registered charitable organisation recognised by the Wikimedia Foundation as an official chapter that support Australian-based edit-a-thons, training and advocacy projects across the country.
