Participative work session on how gender is represented in new media and writing/publishing tools like Wikipedia. How does it influence the way history is recorded today?
As we are sure many of you have already heard, Brussel's Beursschouwburg is hosting an extensive program called The Future is Feminist, where we will be doing three participative work-sessions. With the help of guest speakers and performers we will look into chants, alternative history sources and ways to decolonise views on source credibility. Wikipedia will be used to varying degrees in these events, depending on the guest and the subject at hand, but we invite you to enjoy a mix of input and output, addressing oral history and its importance as a narrative and collective practice. Feminist chants and slogans will guide us in the editing of Wikipedia pages, to add missing narratives to the polyphonic collaborative encyclopedia.
Please bring your laptop
There will be food provided on all events
We can organize child care, please let us know in advance
