Digital While Black

Digital While Black, an unconference exploring gender, race, class and digital expression.
The digital has enabled increased freedom of production, but also as enabler of existing oppression. We’re simultaneously confronted with issues regarding digital blackface and alt-right troll hacking, whilst also seeing how black and PoC folks have transformed the way social media is used, reframing discourse and showcasing genre defying creativity.
Come and join us for a day of discussions, workshops and talks as we interrogate how digital platforms are influenced by and shape our experience of race and gender, how black and PoC communities have used digital media to challenge the mainstream and what the opportunities and concerns for the future are.
