Free Registration required

This workshop will happen in-person at Milieux Institute. Places will be limited; please book by contacting Daniel Fiset at [email protected].

Caroline Sinders will be offering an in-person workshop as part of People’s History of the Internet, a research project which aims at producing a decentralized and global narrative of the network’s presence and impact in our daily lives.

The workshop will use design thinking strategies as an artistic method to document, map, and explore collaborative ways to build and remember web community histories. More specifically, it looks to broaden, shift, or remediate accepted narratives or representations of the Internet, and to highlight key figures (some of them women-identified, or BIPOC) and moments that have largely been erased from canonical histories of the Internet. Participants will be invited to contribute data which brings forth our intimate, personal, subjective or countercultural experiences of (and entanglements with) the web.

This workshop is offered in partnership with Concordia University’s Milieux Institute for Arts, Culture and Technology.

This workshop will be offered in English.
