Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon focusing on performance and fringe media, co-presented with FADO Performance Art Centre, Pleasure Dome, and the AGO.


Collaborators wanted!


Calling all writers, editors, and Wiki enthusiasts! Calling all performance artists and fringe media-makers! Let’s change official culture together, let’s rewrite the online encyclopedias, start filling in the too obvious gaps. Except for those born in libraries, Wiki procedures are anything but transparent. In an hour-long session, we’ll show you how, then provide individual assistance as you write about your own superheroes. Together we can continue the work of diversifying visual arts content and editorship on Wikipedia. We welcome past collaborators and new editors to help build Wikipedia content. No Wikipedia editing experience is necessary.


ABOUT PLEASURE DOME

Since the fall of 1989, Pleasure Dome has presented diverse experimental media arts, as such we strive to nurture an appreciation for artists’ moving images in ways which are accessible, engaging and challenging, and balance our exhibition priorities to include: current practices, historical traditions, and works which are shown infrequently due to genre or format, or because their creators have traditionally been denied access to wide-spread exhibition. We are proud of our long-standing and ongoing commitment to alternative media arts and artists through commissions, the exhibition of diverse formats and perspectives, and to the development of public appreciation and critical understanding of experimental media art through the distribution and publication of critical writing on the art form.
