Outcomes and impact



Provide the original project goal here.
  • It is our goal to expand the 2013 Art+Feminism Editathon by:
  • running three NYC training events in Fall 2014/Winter 2015
  • running one webcast training event on March 1st 2015
  • organizing one large NYC editathon on March 8th 2015
  • coordinating satellite training in the Fall/Winter
  • coordinating satellite editathons around the world on March 8th.
  • Train the Trainers:
There will be three Train the Trainer events before the March 2015 international editathon. Taking place on October 27, 2014, December 9, 2014, and February 2015 (date TBD), each workshop will have two tracks, one for beginners and one for those who have basic editing skills. We will bring in experienced participants from the 2013 event both as trainers, and as participants to gain the skills to be trainers. It is our hope that participants who progress through the October and December events will become facilitators at the February event. Our goal for these workshops is to both empower a group of +Feminism-friendly ambassadors and to rally our networks for the March 2015 international editathon.
