Promoting Women in the Arts

USC's School of Visual Art and Design teamed up with Art+Feminism to celebrate Women's History Month by holding an edit-a-thon. The event featured guest speakers discussing their projects, including Dr. Colleen Laird's Japanese Women Directors Project, and presentations from SVAD professors about their own efforts to amplify women artists and their work. The second half of the event was a technical demo on creating and editing Wikipedia pages, followed by attendees actively researching, writing, and editing. No prior experience was necessary, and everyone was welcome to participate in closing information gaps related to traditionally underrepresented artists. The event was sponsored by USC's Center for Asian Studies in the Walker Institute for International and Area Studies, the School of Visual Art and Design, and the Humanities Collaborative, with support provided by Film and Media Studies and Digital Research Services & Collections.

Note: this is a selection of useful resources about women in art and media history. It does not pretend to be comprehensive. Not included, along with sites of which I’m unaware, are some of the many excellent and useful resources for contemporary women artists and media-makers or any of the many recent, current, and forthcoming exhibitions and programs dedicated to women in the arts and media.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
