Flyer for the day's activities.

The Wiki Arte y Cultura Latinoamerica, abbreviated as WIKIarte, edit-a-thon is a global campaign to improve Wikipedia's coverage of Latin American arts and culture and to counter geocultural systemic bias on Wikipedia.

The Museum of Modern Art (WP:MoMA GLAM page) and the Fundación Cisneros/Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros (FC/CPPC) are uniting with international allies to focus on the lives and works of Latin American artists, architects and designers.

With keystone events scheduled for October 22nd in New York City and elsewhere, the campaign aims to further similar goals to Art+Feminism.
