Art+Feminism is a global network of activists that are increasing the visibility of women of arts all around the world. By Introducing Arctic Art+Feminism, we wanted to focus on women from Indigenous groups in the Arctic region. This project aligns with our work to increase diversity on the Wikimedia projects, both for Indigenous languages and the gender balance on Wikipedia and the project was partly funded by Fritt Ord Foundation.

Regnestykket for Wikipedia er overveldende. Om man regner antall unike artikler på Wikipedia på tvers av alle språk, og ganger det med ca antall språk Wikipedia finnes på i dag får vi det antallet artikler som må skrives for at all verdens kunnskap skal være tilgjengelig for alle på sitt eget språk. I dag gir det oss 6 milliarder artikler tastet inn for hånd av mennesker. Det er et forenklet regnestykke, hvor vi ikke har tatt høyde for ting som nye artikler og nye språkversjoner.
Indigenous people and the Wikimedia movement: Three take-aways from the Arctic Knot Wikimedia Language Conference
This blog was first published at the Wikimedia Foundation Diff blog on the International day of Indigenous People, August 9 2021.
The United Nations’ theme for this year’s International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples is “Leaving no one behind: Indigenous peoples and the call for a new social contract.”
For the Arctic Knot Wikimedia Language Conference we wanted to work with a designer with a good understanding of the Sámi history and culture and try to find a way to reflect this in the conference design. That, and our previous experience with Árvu was the reason we chose to ask them to create the conference logo. The word Árvu means «value»in Northern Sámi, and on their website they write «Árvu is the unique arctic identity».
