Seize It, Mix It, Make It? Harnessing Digital Differently

2:00 pm - 9:00 pm

We are often encouraged to ‘harness the digital’, but what does this mean? Do we see ourselves represented in digital technologies? Do we feel they are ours to harness?

What could be freed, enabled and created by considering ‘digital technologies’ in broader terms: by creating environments that allow practices to mix, people to share and new ideas to grow?

What might happen by bringing together the practices of weaving and coding?

What would be spoken by an AI (Artificial Intelligence) chat-bot that was developed in a collaborative space?

Join Knowle West Media Centre for a journey of digital mixology starting with a collaborative AI workshop with Coral Manton and Birgitte Aga. This will be followed by an evening of discussion, with guest speakers and cocktail bar – bring your favourite ingredients to add to the mix!

2-5pm: Women Reclaiming AI for Activism

A collaborative workshop for women designing a conversational AI. No coding skills required.

5-6pm: Walking tour from KWMC to KWMC: The Factory
6-9pm: Digital Mixology (KWMC: The Factory)

Discussion and guest speakers from 6-8pm, followed by cocktails and chat from 8-9pm.

Commons Sense Programme

This event is part of a live programme to accompany KWMC’s Commons Sense exhibition, which is open from May – September 2018. Digital sensors are all around: every day things are ‘sensed’ by smart technologies. But what data can and should be collected? Is it used for the common good or corporate gain? Commons Sense is an interactive exhibition exploring sensors, data and ‘the commons’, made in collaboration with artists Becca Rose and Pete Bennett.
