Collective Strategies to Expose Injustice
The Art of Exposing Injustice - Part 4
Gathering the community around the Disruption Network Lab to share collective approaches and tools for activating social, political and cultural change.
Curated by Lieke Ploeger. In cooperation with Transparency International.
In our closing community gathering of the year, we focus on extending and connecting our programme and network with social and cultural initiatives active in both Berlin and abroad, highlighting different ways of possible direct participation and engagement with the topics we discussed in our 2019 conference program ‘The Art of Exposing Injustice’:
• The inner mechanisms of the financial system, and the crime, corruption and wrongdoing hidden by secretive offshore companies (DARK HAVENS: Confronting Hidden Money and Power, April 2019)
• How AI & algorithms reinforce prejudices and biases of its human creators and societies, and how to fight discrimination (AI TRAPS: Automating Discrimination, June 2019)
• The investigative impact of grassroots communities and citizens to expose injustice, corruption and power asymmetries (CITIZENS OF EVIDENCE: Independent Investigations for Change, September 2019)
Our community gathering brings together the different communities, networks and initiatives that worked with us over the course of the year through our Activation community program, as well as additional speakers, and invites you to join them in a collective discussion on the possible ways that we can work together on social, political and cultural change.
The Activation program opens with workshops in the morning, continues with open conversations in the afternoon and closes with a final performance. We invite activists, artists, Berlin-based communities and initiatives, hackers, researchers and everyone interested in our research and activities to join our closing gathering of the year, to share collective strategies and tools to expose injustice, meet others working on alternative ways of intervening in society and discover ways to connect with our network and activities in the future.
