The Feminist Art Project Add-a-Thon, July 24–30

July 12, 2017

Grab your laptop and help us add 1,000 listings to the TFAP Calendar Archive in one week. Host a gathering and share on social media with #TFAPAddaThon!

The Feminist Art Project (TFAP) and Special Collections and University Archives invite the international public to participate in the TFAP Add-a-Thon, July 24–30, 2017.

The goal of this initiative is to expand the TFAP Calendar Archive—the only comprehensive, searchable, virtual repository of contemporary feminist art activities across varying media and from all over the world—by 1,000 listings in one week. This helps ensure that the achievements of diverse communities of women in the visual arts are included in the cultural mainstream and acknowledged in the historical record.

All are welcome to add listings of events from 2005 onward, such as exhibitions, films, lectures, performances, publications, classes, etc., in all visual art media with feminist art content or analysis, feminist intent, or work by any individual woman or women of all gender expressions. Past, current, and future events are welcome! This is not an artist’s registry.

  • TFAP encourages the public to work as individuals or collaboratively with co-workers, friends, and family by hosting a TFAP Add-a-Thon gathering. Use #TFAPAddaThon and tag @TFAPatRutgers to share your events.
  • Be a Feminist Archivist-Activist! Individuals can list their own or their institution's feminist art activities. Archivist-Activists can also focus on smaller institutions in their communities, a large university, or a museum...the sky is the limit!
  • TFAP requests that the public send catalogs, announcements, event ephemera, and other materials that mirror the Calendar Archive listings to be included in the TFAP Archive, a key resource for researchers and scholars studying the Contemporary Feminist Art Movement. Mail to: The Feminist Art Project Archives, Center for Women in the Arts and Humanities, Rutgers University, 640 Bartholomew Road #125A, Piscataway, NJ 08854. Participants with materials that will not fit into a 9x12" envelope should contact TFAP for assistance at or call 848-932-3726.

This initiative is in partnership with the Miriam Schapiro Archives, Special Collections University Archives at Rutgers University, where The Feminist Art Project physical archive is stored and maintained.
