The Saturday of the festival features a workshop series in the framework of the European Platform for Data Humanism.

300.000km/s, an interdisciplinary urban innovation office, will involve participants in a discussion around liveability in the context of urban planning and will show methodologies applied in their innovative project Ciutat Vella’s Land-use Plan in Barcelona, which was awarded the STARTS Prize’19 for Innovative Collaboration. Bjørn Karmann and Tore Knudsen, winners of the STARTS Prize’19 for Artistic Exploration, will show visitors how to design their own Alias, a parasite that hacks your smart home assistant.

The afternoon will have a focus on Women: Starting with Women reclaiming AI, Birgitte Aga and Coral Manton lead participants in designing an alternative AI Voice Assistant created by a growing community of self-identifying women (trans, intersex and cis) and all nonbinary, agender and gender variant people.

Charlotte Jarvis will then invite a select group of 12 women to participate in a ritual for populating history without patriarchy. This is a starting point of In Posse: an ambitious art project to make female sperm for this liberation purpose.
