Not Found On Workshop @ Tender Centre, Rotterdam
Focus: Looking at comparing the IRL queer spaces to the needs of online space.
What: Introduction / Co-writing workshop | 12 bodies
A Call to Collaborate on..... ' a collective knowledge network for feminist, queer and intersectionally focused artistic and social projects' currently in development and in need of more voices.

This is our second meet up session, since our think tank day on the 9th March in Rotterdam where we discussed the design and development of the platform, issues of safety and visiblity and especially the urgent need to establish the grounding principles / code of conduct.

The aim is to be a online co-written and incomplete non-stanardised english language collective knowledge network for feminist, queer and intersectionally focused artistic and social projects plus the spaces that support them. With a specific focus on strategies of expression, self organisation and radical self care.

This a peer sharing resource is being created using open source tools, and designed and written with, for and by queer feminist bodies. Putting the subjective experience of the body at the centre of knowledge creation. Working with text, images, audio and video as valid knowledge entries. Embracing that knowledge is not neutral .

Workshop by Just For The Record @ Worm Rotterdam

Designer/Programmer: Cristina Cochior ( Varia )
Producer: Rae Parnell ( Pirate Bay Media Archive - WORM )Production: Frederic Van De Velde
Project Initiator: Aay Liparoto

It is time to question how/where we gather our knowledge and who gets to create knowledge and ‘facts’. Feminist, Queer and intersectionally focused performance, video, film and spaces are sites of knowledge creation by continuing to questioning both how we live and how we could live differently. Due to the often precarious and transitory nature of these projects they have a great need to be recorded in the public domain, yet struggle to fulfill the criteria for existing open source structures such as Wikipedia. Wikipedia offers the illusion of inclusion, whilst maintaining normative patriarchal concepts of knowledge creation (via referencing structures) and system biases (predominantly male contributors). Why have certain types of knowledge been marginalised from contemporary online encyclopedias? How can we use artistic strategies to address this?

Not Found On’s aim is to create a wiki platform and to develop a inclusion guide for feminist, queer and intersectional projects, artists, curators, spaces and publications. The platform will function as free, editable resource and a space to question what knowledge is created by artistic practice/how can they be recorded in relation to each other as a valuable resource. Developing a publication for in real life (IRL) workshops to encourage greater participation in archiving our own artistic communities.
