THIS CONVERSATION IS A SERVER
24TH SEPTEMBER 2020 7-8.30 PM (BST)
Organising in digital space: From decentralisation to distribution
Zoom conversation event with live Etherpad discussion with Colm Guo-Lin Peare, Kate Frances Lingard and Rebecca Gill
Drawing from chatrooms and forums where knowledge is exchanged in non-expert networks, to share ideas and learn together about digital modes of decentralisation, the informal discussion will focus on possible exits from centralised online platforms, governance models enabled by peer-to-peer networks, and blockchain technology.
"This is not about searching for a utopia, but rather about seriously considering how the digital tools we use also use us."

UNIVERSAL SPECIES REFERENDUM
8TH SEPTEMBER 2020 7-8 PM (BST)
An online workshop with Cerrato-Halls
What would the world look like if all species had the right to vote?
Within this workshop we imagine what Universal Species Suffrage would look like if all species had not only the right to vote, but also the self determinism, value, and agency through a fair and free electoral system.
Image shows 5 horizontal cylinders - yellow, purple, blue, green, red - and text reads 'UNIVERSAL SPECIES REFERENDUM'.
