(DIY&DIWO wiki as safe space for +LGBTIQ+ communities)
This is an invitation to join an online, intimate listening and co-writing workshop with discussion of DIY&DIWO community networks and content repositories.
Over the past year NotFoundOn has been co-creating a mediawiki platform to record/connect feminist queer intersectional knowledge. It has done so by responding to tensions for the desire for privacy and the desire to share, as well as the precarious nature of the spaces we occupy. It is the recognition of bars, kitchens, sports teams as sites of knowledge creation and the desire to seek alternatives to corporately owned social media.
We welcome participants from the LGBTQIA+ communities who have an intersectional feminist approach, to love and inclusiveness. No pre-existing wiki knowledge is necessary. All bodies welcome.
NotFoundOn project is implicitly obfuscated communal web, setup as a custom MediaWiki instance and self-organized safe-space of a slow, self-identifying/hosting/developing (content-focused) community. With this in mind we will keep the freedom to select participants that have the most urgency to join us and inform others on the waiting list and other opportunities.
- **Introduction:** We will begin the session by listening to a short interview of the NotFoundOn platform about the urgency for safe spaces online and tentative use/impact. We will then be making accounts on the platform, becoming familiar with it, learning about Mediawiki markup language and key functionalities.
Following this, we will self-determine & self-organise work in different constellations and intensities (additions, editing, comments, musings, ..., maybe bug reports or feature proposals), that can be continuous or break-infused, based on interests and amount of energy.
- **Wrap Up:** A circle for collective reflection with everyone.
**Note:** No pre-existing wiki knowledge is necessary. All bodies welcome.
