The Interactive Arts Laboratory (InArts Lab) of the Department of Audio & Visual Arts of the Ionian University, in collaboration with CorfuTechLab and the Public Central Historic Library of Corfu and with the support of the Wikimedia Community User Group Greece is holding a training session on: "Art and Activism: a Wikipedia Edit-a-thon on Greek women artists.", on Wednesday, 17/01/2024, 09:30 - 13:30.

Speaker: Sevi Pavlaki, Senior student of the Department of Audio and Visual Arts.

In the Wikimedia Foundation's survey of editors for 2018, 90% of the 3,734 respondents identified their gender as male, 8.8% as female and 1% as other. This identified the problem of the gender bias of the online encyclopedia — along with other geographical, racial and societal biases — reflects the biases of its community of editors, as well as systemic inequities in the broader world.

  As a result, a community of activists was formed in 2013, committed to filling the information gaps on gender, feminism and the arts, starting with Wikipedia. From coffee shops and community centers to the world's largest museums and universities, Art+Feminism is leading a "do-it-yourself" and "do-it-with-others" campaign that teaches people of all gender identities and expressions to edit Wikipedia.

  Sevi Pavlaki, a senior student of the Department of Audio and Visual Arts of the Ionian University, organizes, in the framework of her thesis (supervised by Assoc. Prof. Dalila Honorato), a Wikipedia marathon on Greek women artists. The aim of this is to re-create and/or expand existing Greek and English Wikipedia entries with information on Greek women artists, in order to promote them. The edit-a-thon will take place on Wednesday, 17/01/2024, at 09:30 - 13:30 at the Public Central Historic Library of Corfu, British Barracks - Old Fortress.
