FLEFF Panel: Activist Retooling, Fourfold

Tuesday, April 12 from 7-9pm, Ithaca College Business Room 104

Panelists:

Dreamaddictive
Elvira Dyangani Ose
Monica Haller
Sarah Wylie

Panelists will discuss ongoing projects touching on a range of issues and strategies relevant to current forms of media activism. Topics include the development of opensource and specialized tools as a means to channel scientific and private knowledge to the cultural and social domain; the move toward creating provisional and limited range broadcast technologies and the choice to focus on the immediate as ways to drive transnational outlooks; the prescience of formative personal experiences for the furthering of generative political processes; and the challenges in using digital tools to hold authoritarian structures accountable. These questions among others will be raised in the presentations and the follow-up moderated discussion.

Moderated by Maria Fernandez and Nicholas Knouf, featuring Dreamaddictive (Mexico), Elvira Dyangani Ose, Monica Haller and Sarah Wylie
