On Wednesday, August 24th from 3-5, Black Lunch Table and the FIT Library will be hosting a pop-up photobooth on the sixth floor of the library to take portraits of artists and designers from the FIT Community.
We encourage you to come get your portrait taken and learn more about how you and your students can harness Wikimedia tools to expand the narrative about diversity and the arts. Portraits taken can be downloaded for use in portfolios and websites.
Black Lunch Table’s (BLT) primary aim is the production of discursive sites, wherein artists and local community members engage in dialogue on a variety of critical issues. BLT mobilizes a democratic rewriting of contemporary cultural history by animating discourse around and among the people living it. First staged in 2005 at Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture artist residency, the project has grown by way of contributions from and collaborations with artists, digital humanities researchers, and Wikipedians. BLT currently includes two roundtable series’, an online oral history archive, and a Wikipedia initiative. Much like its creation of physical spaces that foster community and generate critical dialogue, BLT creates a digital space for art, Black studies and social justice issues.
