Wiki Women Design
Many female designers remained under the radar of researchers and heritage institutions. The Flanders Architecture Institute wants to catch up by registering and disclosing the data and knowledge about women who have left their mark on our designed environment on Wikipedia: from graphic design and interior architecture to fashion and product design.
In a collaboration with heritage institutions, designers, the academic world and the Wikipedia community, the VAi wants to make this knowledge visible and accessible and contribute in a participatory way to a more inclusive registration of designer heritage.
Are you interested in this project or would you like to contribute as an organisation, researcher or volunteer? Are you in possession of archival material about women who had an impact on the design environment in Belgium or do you know of archival material or collections held by other organisations or private individuals? Let us know about it!
