A workshop led by Bika Rebek with Guest Lexi Tsien.
New ways of organizing have emerged over the past few months, taking advantage of networked models to decenter and dismantle traditional hierarchical structures. This lecture and workshop will discuss ways that community building, organizing and activism are becoming architectural skills. Many of the tools used in these processes have been around for years, but the combination of social isolation with an increased awareness of the need to develop specifically anti-racist practice has borne these new formats. In this workshop students will explore ways to disseminate and lobby for an idea and think about collective ways of production and action.
Students will learn about social media, campaign building, independent practice, mailchimp, google analytics, creating questionnaires.
Organized as part of the Fall 2020 Blended Learning series for GSAPP students in all programs. This series of lectures and workshops is designed to help students find their own path through creating virtual content deeply anchored in the realities of today.
