During the current times, Varia's Read & Repair days are continuing in a trans-local mode. We are trying to find the right balance between having different modes of togetherness through collective reading and sharing, while joining either through an online channel or by being present in the space in Charlois.
Digital Solidarity Networks
The guests for the upcoming Sunday are the custodians of the Digital Solidarity Networks pad. Digital Solidarity Networks started as a listing of tools, practices and readings for convivial digital solidarity amongst individuals, institutions and collectives. The initiative lives as an online collaborative writing space, where people come together to collect and discuss examples of collective digital alternative practices.
We will be reading the following texts:
- Myriam Aouragh, Seda Gürses, Jara Rocha, Femke Snelting - "Let's first get things done! on division of labour and technopolitical practices of delegation in times of crisis"
- Spider Alex - "Underneath and on the sidelines: Sustaining feminist infrastructures using speculative fiction"
- Josh Gabert-Doyon - "On paranoia and reparative reading"
This will be a mixed reality session, meaning that you are welcome to adopt one of two forms of presence: physical or virtual.
We are looking forward to practice careful conviviality together again! Physical presences will be protected as much as possible by adopting some security measures: max 12 people are allowed in the space with 1.5 meter distance between them. Hand gel and masks are available.
There will be a pad where we will be meeting, discussing and collecting our notes: https://altpad.vvvvvvaria.org/rr-digi-soli-networks
For those joining us virtually, this is where we can all meet.
