RE: Infrastructures September 20–22, 2019 Toronto, Ontario

RE: Infrastructures explores the collective care and maintenance of
alternative networking practices—new protocols, peer-to-peer connections,
offline-first computing, and community-based governance.

How can these emerging Infrastructures provide spaces to imagine radically
different futures, resist easy co-option by the forces of late-stage
capitalism, and work in solidarity as plural networks seeking emancipatory
change? To answer this we draw on insights from organizers, technologists,
artists, and scholars to ensure the focus is not only on the technical
aspects of infrastructure, but also the social and cultural. Their diverse
perspectives suggest ways we can make space for livelihoods, solidarity,
and survival; draw on history and place to bring our fullest imaginations
to this moment; and open ways to think these questions together as we build
transitional forms.
