Meet the Artist Who’s Hacking at Visibility and Knowledge With Art

Posted May 16, 2018 by Siko Bouterse

Images help us make sense of the world. They are a unique form of knowledge with the potential to show us how to celebrate our differences in a way that language cannot. This is one of the reasons that the online visibility of humans, in all of our multiple and diverse forms, matters so deeply. Artist Gretchen Andrew encourages us to think about art as capable of dramatically changing the way the internet represents women and other marginalized communities.

Decolonizing the Internet conference

Posted February 27, 2018 by Anasuya Sengupta

We are hosting the first ever convening on centering marginalized knowledges online - in July 2018, Cape Town, South Africa! 75% of those online are from the global South, but hardly represented on the internet. We are bringing together community organizers, technologists, scholars, artists, Wikimedians and others, to build more awareness, allies, and joint action plans.
