10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Location: KWMC: The Factory (Filwood Green Business Park)
A workshop exploring how to use conversational AI (Artificial Intelligence) as a medium for protest. Run by artists and creative technologists Coral Manton and Birgitte Aga.
Coral and Birgitte have been developing a ‘feminist chatbot’ for over a year with groups of self-identifying women from across the country through a project called: Women Reclaiming AI for Activism (WRAI). In this workshop you will have the chance to:
– find out about the WRAI project
– learn how to create your own activist chatbot for an issue you care about (such as equality or the environment)
– find out how to involve your wider community in using conversational AI as a medium for protest.
This is an opportunity for collective action and protest, and a space for you to share your thoughts and be listened to.
PLEASE NOTE: No previous experience of coding is required. Please bring a tablet or laptop if you have access to one or let us know if you’d like us to provide you with one.
Lunch is provided. Travel and child care bursaries are available. When you RVSP please state if you would like to access either a childcare or travel bursary.

Please do get in touch with any questions. If you are unable to make this date / time, but are interested in the project let us know and we may be able to run more workshops in the future.
WRAI is supported by ARTS Council England and South West Creative Technology Network.
