An Indigenous Storytellers Edit-A-Thon is being held Tuesday April 4, 2017 3 – 7 PM PDT. The event is being hosted by UBC and Concordia is dedicated to revising and creating entries on Wikipedia for Indigenous storytellers, with an emphasis on those working in film and theatre in Turtle Island. There are on-site options for participation at both schools and there is an option for folks to participate remotely.
The event invites community members to participate locally or remotely and is also involving students from classes at UBC and Concordia. I love the idea of making an edit-a-thon part of a class assignment or an in-class activity. I also love that this event is lifting up Indigenous artists and Indigenous community based organizations. Interested in participating remotely? Add your name to the participant list on the event meetup page.
