Short Term Instructional Designer for Art+Feminism

The Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon seeks an Instructional Designer to support the educational needs of our initiative.

Art+Feminism (http://www.artandfeminism.org/) 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.  Since 2014, over 7,000 people at more than 500 events around the world have participated in Art+Feminism’s Edit-a-thons, resulting in the creation and improvement of more than 11,000 articles on Wikipedia. Foreign Policy Magazine named the founders Leading Global Thinkers and the project has received almost $200,000 in grant funding. Art+Feminism has also received coverage from Artforum, The New York Times, The New Yorker, CBC, Canadian Art, and the BBC.

The ideal candidate has strong instructional design skills, an interest in feminist and social justice work, and a working knowledge of the Wikipedia community.

The Instructional Designer’s responsibilities will include:

  • Revise our editing kit (http://www.artandfeminism.org/editing-kit/), which includes 13 2-5 minute training videos and 2 reusable PowerPoint presentations. Revisions must also be ADA-compliant.

  • Consult on relevant external training materials to be shared with our community.

The position is grant-funded for up to $2500 and the work would take place from December, 2017 – February, 2018.

To apply, please send a cover letter and resume to us at info@artandfeminism.org.
