Copyright Workshop at MoMA
Join us on Saturday, October 22nd, for Wikipedia Edit-a-thon: Arte y Cultura Latinoamericana (“WikiArte”), a communal day of creating, updating, improving, and translating Wikipedia articles about Latin American art and culture.
This year’s edit-a-thon kicks off at 10:00 a.m. with an hour-long conversation exploring the ways in which Latin American/Latina women artists are experimenting with and employing digital tools to engage with communities, share ideas, and make new work. The panel will feature artists Sol Aramendi, Sharon Lee De La Cruz, and Marisa Morán Jahn, and will be moderated by Rocío Aranda-Alvarado, curator at El Museo del Barrio.
Afternoon breakout groups will engage in focused discussions about translation, copyright, and what constitutes “notability” on Wikipedia. Sergio Muñoz Sarmiento will be leading the workshop on copyright and use of content at 4pm.
Don’t forget to rsvp, which you can do here.
There will be childcare available for the event, but please note: Childcare requires advance registration by October 18. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with the number of children requiring care, their first names and ages, and what time you plan to arrive.
