Afrofuturist Period Room

1 February 2022 @ 00:00 28 February 2022 @ 23:59 UTC+0

The Afrofuturist Period Room wiki campaign is a virtual edit-a-thon running throughout February 2022.

It focuses on Before Yesterday We Could Fly (Q109674835) as a particularly data-rich and intertextual exhibition that brings together historical, modern and contemporary African diaspora art and history, to be further developed as community crowdsourced resources on Wikipedia and Wikidata.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art are hosting, as well as bringing together as partners the wiki groups AfroCrowd, Black Lunch Table, and Wikimedia New York City. The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture was also instrumental in curating the exhibition, and the Afrofuturist Teen Advisory Council established by both cultural institutions will also be active in furthering the project.
