On Friday, February 27th, the Maker Lab and the CFUV Women’s Collective will be hosting an Arduino workshop titled, “Making Media Art as Feminist Practice.” Shaun and I will facilitate the workshop, and we plan to introduce participants to Arduino by building simple circuits that sense input (such as pressure) from the environment and translate it into visual output (such as light). With participants we will also contextualize technical practices through women’s histories of computing, and we’ll discuss the intersections of circuit design with feminist media art (in particular) and feminist practices (in general).

When: Friday, February 27th, at 3:00pm
Where: The Maker Lab in the Humanities (Technology Enterprise Facility 243)
Register: Please email maker@uvic.ca.
Free to attend. No previous experience required.
