I hope you are enjoying these nice warm (last?) days of summer. I just wanted to extend this invitation from my friend Adriel Luis, Curator of Digital & Emerging Media at Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center. Adriel will be hosting the edit-a-thon so feel free to say hello and tell him I sent ya.
Wednesday, September 2, 2015 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM
Join us for #WikiAPA, a social evening of Wikipedia editing, dedicated to creating, updating, and improving articles about Asian Pacific American art and artists. Hosted at The Museum of Modern Art in collaboration with the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center, the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU, and Wikimedia NYC, this meetup will focus on unearthing information about a creatively-rich community that has historically been overlooked.
All are invited, with no specialized knowledge of the subject or Wikipedia editing experience required. Please bring your laptop and power cord; we will provide research resources, WiFi, and a list of suggested topics on hand. Come early to see Yoko Ono: One Woman Show, 1960-1971 during its final week.
Admission to the edit-a-thon is free, but please RSVP: http://www.eventbrite.com/e/wikiapa-edit-a-thon-tickets-17974764003
