Spring Geekender: Building a Feminist Internet
Save the Date: Our next Geekender is coming this 16 - 18 March!
In collaboration with UAL Futures’ Feminist Internet Project we will be speculating on issues of power, gender and technology with a weekend of events, workshops and experimentation.
Friday night will kick off with a panel on “Tomorrow’s Nipple” about the control of images on social media, and the corporate policing of nipples online. Read more and book online.
Saturday afternoon, 1-4pm, swing by our studio floor to explore feminist zine-making, or get tips on handling online harassment. Free with day pass
Saturday night experience our late evening takeover of the Gallery by the Feminist Internet Project, including live performances and installations from femminancybitch69 and Charlie Craggs. The Feminist Internet digital clinic will also be open, where you can discover how you can be transformed into an antibody to fight the virus of online abuse and harassment.
Sunday afternoon we will be running an Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon where you can learn how to edit Wikipedia in order to address gaps in the coverage of knowledge about women, gender, feminism, and the arts in this important online resource.
Feminist Internet is supported by UAL Futures and Careers and Employability, University of the Arts London.
Feminist Internet is a cross-disciplinary project from University of the Arts London between a group of artists, designers and activists who aim to intervene in the development of the internet to promote gender equality, equal rights and justice for all. Feminist Internet believe there is a need to go beyond current definitions and images of feminism, gender, race and class, and have written a Manifesto to express their principles.
The Saturday drop-in workshops are presented in collaboration with Feminist Internet, Amnesty International and Glitch!UK
