TUNE IN SAT 25 July 2020 10am(CEST) 18hrs/6pm(AEST)

A 2-hour collaborative writing session, morphing, exploring, expanding upon 10 working points. Together we will overwrite, edit, correct, challenge, echo, duplicate, expand, solidify, summarise, nuance, incant...these principles and lores. Performing a collaborative working definition of a *feminist internet in the context of the writing session folds in all the waves *waves* \0\ \0/ /0/

Performing our politics live, for each other, carving out online space away from systems of imperial fixity, and towards skill sharing, fluidity and multiplicity. Participants are enabled to embrace literary freedom: riffing off, imagining, rejecting or rephrasing the original text in this form of active poetry.

Working from the position of an *open feminism that embraces multiplicity, diversity, queerness, ephemeral becoming, transforming, shifting - making space for underrepresented voices and not privileging our voices in relation to others – nor doom scrolling but instead affirmative feeling through sentences, and dancing words with other people. Through this performative exploration we are seeding the ground of diverse feminist traditions of knowledge production. 10 working draft points - propositions - expand in each iteration, together with local and remote presences.
Carving out online space that is fluid and wayward, experimentally through deciphering, interpreting, trying, failing, and blossoming. Indeterminate writing is an act of care, mediation and healing, by deploying networked tools away from tactics of control, other kinds of knowledge exchange and voices to arise and intermingle in this space of possibility.
