Art+Feminism2021 DRC (Lubumbashi) ISTAM
In the combined efforts to develop an active and participative community in the Wiki project, we plan to organize the Art+Feminism activity for 2 days and to participate in the 2021 campaign in a more special context than in other years.

In this campaign of 2021, we intend to develop the community in order to settle down and initiate more female contributors and work on women who have marked the history of our country in several fields (politics, art, culture, sports, etc.).

We estimate a 50-65% participation of women.

4. Do participants have the equipment or skills needed to participate and contribute high quality content? If not, how will you support them?

In terms of equipment, half of the participants will bring their PCs, which is why in the budget, we asked the foundation to help us rent the PCs for the rest of the participants for this event.
During the two days of training, we will give participants the necessary skills to edit and improve Wikipedia articles.

5. How will you engage participants after the event(s)?

In order to engage the community to stay active after the event, face-to-face and online meetup will be organized, as well as Wikipermanence to meet new contributors and engage them in the community.

6. Are you running any in-person events or activities? If so, you will need to complete the steps outlined on the Risk Assessment protocol related to COVID-19. When you have completed these steps, please provide a link to your completed copy of the risk assessment tool below:
