Edit-a-Thon for Indigenous Artists Biographies
Writers and editors - experienced and new - are welcome to join us in the Library and Archives for the Gallery's first edit-a-thon. Popularized by groups like Art + Feminism, edit-a-thons are free events held to update underrepresented artists' profiles on websites like Wikipedia. Staff from the Gallery will provide help for beginners, lists of suggested artists, and reference materials.
The Inuit Art Foundation is partnering with the National Gallery of Canada Library and Archives on this event to present an IAQ Profiles Edit-a-Thon. The Inuit Art Quarterly Profiles is the definitive online resource for artists, collectors, curators, gallerists and others to learn more about the diversity and talent of Inuit artists, working in all media. A free and publicly accessible platform produced by the Inuit Art Quarterly magazine, the IAQ Profiles features historical and contemporary artists from across Inuit Nunangat and southern Canada. Cataloguing artist exhibitions, publications, achievements and more, this unique resource is maintained by the Inuit Art Foundation but needs you to grow.
