Community Fellow
Due Oct 20 2018

Art+Feminism is looking for a Community Fellow.

What’s Art+Feminism?

Art+Feminism is an award-winning campaign improving coverage of cis and trans women, feminism and the arts on Wikipedia. From coffee shops and community centers to the largest museums and universities in the world, Art+Feminism is a do-it-yourself and do-it-with-others campaign teaching people of all gender identities and expressions to edit Wikipedia. Wikipedia’s gender trouble is well documented. In a 2011 survey, the Wikimedia Foundation found that less than 10% of its contributors identify as female; more recent research points to 16% globally and 23% in the US. This year, over 4,000 participants convened at more than 285 locations on all 6 inhabited continents to create or improve over 22,000 pages. Our annual edit-a-thons have been widely covered by The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, ARTnews, and Art in America amongst over one hundred others. Our organizing practices are horizontal and rhizomatic and our feminism is trans-inclusive and intersectional.

The Community Fellow will manage communication and project pipelines alongside the core organizing committee. This early career position is an opportunity to simultaneously contribute to this large-scale project, and learn from our approach and techniques we have developed over the last 5 years. The ideal candidate has strong project management skills, a demonstrated history of work in social justice and an interest in feminist work, a working knowledge of the Wikipedia community or other online technology community, and a flexible schedule. Art Historical knowledge and fluency in a language other than English is preferred. The fellow will work on contract and can be based in the U.S. or abroad.
