[radical internet futures: let's draw them together] #28
In this session, I will facilitate a collaborative drawing-based discussion between activists, hackers, technologists and researchers on how we can imagine a radically different, better, internet. Participants will be encouraged to produce drawings (individually and in groups) that represent how they imagine the internet to be now and how they would like the internet to be in the future. The drawings will support a discussion on how to imagine radically different technological futures.
Type: [workshop (but I'm open to other formats!)]
Material and Technical Requirements
Participants require pieces of paper of different sizes, markers, and pencils. I can cover the cost of these materials. A room with tables (or another type of flat surface) would be ideal to support the drawing.
As organizers we strive for low-cost pathways of participation, are you interested in a community billet program either hosting out-of-towners or staying with locals?
Elisabetta Ferrari is a PhD Candidate in Communication at the Annenberg School for Communication, University of Pennsylvania (USA). Elisabetta's work focuses on the relationship between social movements, protest and digital technologies. Her dissertation research explores how contemporary radical leftist activists in Europe and the United States imagine the role of technology in their struggle for social change. She uses creative visual methods to engage activists in thinking critically about technology.
