About the project
The project is a follow-up of ‘Imagining Intercitizenships’ , the theme of IAM Weekend 21, the conference we organised in November 2021 as a proposal to collectively envision sustainable futures for the internet(s).
Who is this for?
- Media: journalists, editors, publishers, photo/videographers, writers
- Tech: digital designers, developers, gig workers, researchers, data scientists
- Cultural ecosystems: artists, researchers, curators, cultural producers
In a second phase, we would like to produce and commission the course materials and communication assets needed to run an open call and organise a pilot co-laboratory to test the first version of the curriculum.
We are looking for long-term funding to continue developing this vision. Contact us if you are interested.
