About the activity

The Art & History Museum is hosting a writing session as part of Wiki Women Design. The focus of this writing session is on women designers, who are represented in the Museum: either through their work or because their names surfaced during research. In addition, participants will be introduced to 'Arts de la Femme' and will be able to delve into the theme of women in the institutional history of museums in Belgium, and the lace and costume collection of the Royal Museums of Art and History.

The Flanders Architecture Institute aims to bring to light women who have left their mark on the designed environment in Belgium - from (interior) architecture and graphic design to fashion and product design. Many female designers remained under the radar of researchers, museums, archives, curators and collectors. Wiki Women Design aims to take female designers and their contributions to cultural heritage out of the shadows of history. Improved heritage care, including the registration of these actors through Wikimedia's infrastructure, contributes to improving visibility and making resources available and known.
