Data Visualization as Activism

When: Dec 3, 2020 7:00-8:00 pm

Where: Online

As we reckon with a global pandemic, police brutality, climate change, and a number of other pressing issues, knowing how to make sense of all the data available can be daunting. By using data visualization as a method of activism, Alumni Technology Resident Sam Lavigne will help you see data differently while making it accessible to all in this online workshop. This method will not only work as a help you consume data but make it more informative and useful to others in your community. Date: This one-time online workshop meets on Thursday, December 3 from 7:00-8:00PM ET. Price: $10 Audience: Open to all. Materials: Participants will need a computer/phone with internet access, paper, and drawing utensils. To register, visit



Understanding, Transforming, and Preserving Movement in Digital Spaces

When: Tuesdays at 7:00 pm, from December 1, 2020 until December 15, 2020

Where: Online

In the past few years, access to motion capture data, 3D base models, and software to “make an animation of yourself” has skyrocketed. From MakeHuman to Mixamo to CMU’s motion capture database, the ability to make and finish polished projects has become easier for many. While these resources are extremely helpful to create a range of projects, they lack the tools to create diverse characters and ranges of movements, which are left unexplored by systems that center assumptions of neutrality. This class, led by Alumni Tech Resident LaJuné, will explore issues of cultural representation and exploitation through readings and discussions as well as an introduction to motion capture, rigging, and 3D environments. Core elements of the class will integrate performance, virtual reality, and physical computing to question access, control, and representation inherent in these technologies. Date: This online workshop meets three times with sessions on Tuesday, December 1, December 8, and December 15 from 7:00-9:00PM ET. Price: $75 Audience: Open to all. Materials: Participants will need a computer with internet access. To register, visit



Feminist Data Set

When: Nov 7, 2020 3:00-5:00 pm

Where: Online

What are the feminist data sets inside of social networks, algorithms, and big data? How can we queer data, archives, and the internet? How can a data set act as a form of protest, of a creation of bias mitigation? This class looks at ways of intervention, from art, design, and technology, that combat and challenge bias. How can we create data to be an act of protest against algorithms? This workshop focuses on Alumni Technology Resident Caroline Sinders’s research and current art project, Feminist Data Set. Feminist Data Set acts as a means to combat bias and introduces the possibility of data collection as a feminist practice, aiming to produce a slice of data to intervene in larger civic and private networks. Exploring its potential to disrupt larger systems by generating new forms of agency, Sinders will ask participants: can data collection itself function as an artwork? Date: This one-time online workshop meets on Saturday, November 7 from 3-5PM ET. Price: Free ($10 suggested donation) Audience: Open to all. Materials: Participants will need a computer/phone with internet access. To register, visit

Emotional Embodied Resilience

When: May 18, 2020 6:30-8:00 pm

Where: Zoom -

Use code "redhook" to reserve your free slot. In a techno-capitalist economy that thrives on the quantification of nature and computation of our innermost lives, we ask: What are the gaps between how machines read our emotions and how emotions actually feel in our bodies? In this workshop, we will collectively explore the emotional resilience of the body towards platforms that surveil, manipulate, and automate the human experience. To do so, we will delve into the emotional materiality of the body by using “the blob” metaphor as a lens and a tool to investigate and appreciate the complexities of human emotion. Feeling and sensing through a series of choreographed explorations and discussions, we will create and hold a space for blobby emotivity to emerge—an embodied experience where we embrace the inexplicable and the non-quantifiable, the slow and messy. This workshop will be led by former Tech Resident and Founder of The Centre for Emotional Materiality Surabhi Saraf and Centre for Emotional Material member Laura Hyunjhee Kim.

Freedom School: Read Aloud!

When: Tuesday, July 7, 2020


With millions of children (and many of us) at home as communities respond to the coronavirus crisis, we are looking for a way to bring great CDF Freedom Schools®  books to children who do not have books in their homes. The CDF Freedom Schools community knows the power of Read Aloud, and now we want to take that online. We're asking any partners who can participate to record a video of an at-home Read Aloud and send it to us. We hope to collect Read Aloud videos that we can share with our networks on social media, while we also encourage people across the country to record their own Read Aloud and share it with us, their children, and their friends and families. Check out these examples of a CDF staff-led Read Aloud and a Read Aloud from our partners at The Listening,  Inc. CDF Freedom Schools program to get inspired! Please send us your videos at or post them on Instagram and Twitter, tagging us and using #ReadAloudforKids. Please follow us on Instagram at @childdefender1973. Please feel free to share with your networks, friends, and family.
