Art+Feminism is an award winning campaign to improve coverage of women and the arts on Wikipedia, and to encourage female editorship. 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. Art+Feminism organize an annual editathon in March; at our 2016 Edit-a-thon, 2,500 participants convened at 180 locations on all 6 inhabited continents to create or improve over 3,500 articles. 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 Program Coordinator will play a key role in the development and success of a project that promotes inclusivity in Wikipedia editing, and women in the arts. We have built a robust set of digital tools and practices that the Program Coordinator will be able to build upon. The Program Coordinator will manage communication and project pipelines alongside the core organizing committee. 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. Fluency in a language other than English is preferred.
This is a 1 year contracted position for an average of 24 hours per week at a pay rate of $35 per hour. The Program Coordinator can work either remotely or in person; the lead co-organizers are based in New York and Baltimore. The position requires meeting on evenings and weekends as the lead co-organizers have a standing Sunday work session.
Art+Feminism provides equal employment opportunities to all without regard to race, ethnicity, color, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, national origin, age, disability or genetics. Candidates from groups generally underrepresented in tech are especially encouraged to apply.
