    Wiki Loves Pride Edit-a-Thon

    Join us in the PNCA Library for a Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon that celebrates LGBTQ+ people, events, movements, and institutions (local, national, and international) as part of Pride Month! No prior Wikipedia editing experience is necessary...we'll have tutorials and lots of assistance. Bring a laptop and charging cord, snacks provided. We'll have a list of topics that need work, but if you have something you're passionate about, that's great!

    Wikipedia is often the first place we go for in-depth information about almost everything in the world. With edit-a-thons like this one and Art+Feminism, we hope to make Wikipedia a more representative and inclusive site of information for everyone.

    PNCA Library Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon

    Join us for the second of two Art & Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-Thons this Spring in Portland! These events require no previous experience and are open to people of all gender identities. Just bring a laptop and charging cable and we'll provide everything else! Snacks and experienced, dependable childcare provided! Please RSVP via the EventBrite link...this is not mandatory, but helpful to the organizers, especially if you need childcare.

    About the event:

    Wikimedia’s gender trouble is well-documented. In a 2011 survey, the Wikimedia Foundation found that less than 10% of its contributors identify as female. While the reasons for the gender gap are up for debate, the practical effect of this disparity, however, is not. Content is skewed by the uneven gender participation. This represents an alarming absence in an increasingly important repository of shared knowledge. We all know that this bias is not just about gender. Women of color are often the least represented voices in history. Let’s change that! This event is about amplifying voice. Attendees are encouraged to edit any entry of interest related to arts, feminism, gender studies, activism and LGBTQ issues. All are welcome who care about the representation of all genders in Wikipedia’s content and among its contributors. We will provide tutorials for the beginner Wikipedian, reference materials, and laptops. Bring your own laptop if you have one and any ideas for entries that need updating or creation. We will have a couple extra computers available. For the editing-averse, we urge you to stop by to show your support, learn more about this project, and eat snacks.

    Don't Shoot PDX Community Printmaking Action

    Please join us for a Community Printmaking Action Plan on April 27th at PNCA in PRINT MEDIA's Printmaking Studio (Room #209). This event is to support and produce works of art from the front lines of the social justice movement in Portland Oregon with Don't Shoot PDX.

    A noon time conversation and community building session will kick off the event to announce the goals and plans for the printmaking workshops. Speakers include Teressa Raiford of Don't Shoot Portland and Mike Murawski of the Portland Art Museum. The conversation will transition into a collaborative printmaking workshop and community print action focusing on large scale woodcuts and screenprinting.

    The collaboratively produced artwork will be exhibited at the Portland Art Museum during the Upstanders Festival: Voices of the Unheard event on May 27, which will be a day of spoken word, restorative justice, music and media, interactive workshops, art zines, and poster making in support of Black Lives Matter, houselessness, and building tolerance for immigrants. Upstanders Festival is a social justice extravaganza, shining a light on the bravery and brilliance of activism and changemakers in our midst. Produced by the Museum of Impact, this event series transforms audiences from bystanders to Upstanders through a variety of activities to enhance equity and creative expression. Presented in conjunction with the special exhibition Constructing Identity: Petrucci Family Foundation Collection of African American Art, on view through June 18.

    This is a project in support of the community action and art by Don’t Shoot PDX in collaboration with Pacific Northwest College of Art PRINT MEDIA, Portland Art Museum and Marylhurst University Art Program.
