About the Event

Living in Contradiction: is the second public webinar of Democratize this. You can register for this event alone or for the whole 7 week webinar.

In conceiving of our problems, it takes effort to shift perspective from: “It’s big, it’s scary, it’s hopeless!” to “It’s designed, it’s vulnerable, and we can change it.” We understand our root problems perpetuate each other. In this webinar we explore how to unmask their vulnerabilities, and contest them. Safiya Noble is the author of Algorithms of Oppression: How Search Engines Reinforce Racism, and co-director of the Center for Critical Internet Inquiry at UCLA. Composer and curator Andrew C. Smith will offer relevant musical interludes from his own work and by The Happy Valley Band.

The Democratize This! webinar series invites people to think and collaborate rather than panic and react. Through presentation, performance, and small group work we will explore the question: How do small groups instigate systems change towards a more just and desirable future for everyone?
