The Glass Room: Misinformation Community Edition is an interactive community engagement exhibition that invites people to think critically and proactively about their relationship with digital technologies. It is a space to reflect, discuss, and debate how technology impacts our daily lives and how we consume information, focusing on misinformation, political influence, and democracy. How can we identify “fake news” and verify information? How does misinformation amplify on social media? How do online profiling and political influence work and affect our decisions? The exhibition takes visitors on an exploration journey through the digital information flows and how they influence us as citizens, voters, and consumers.
The Glass Room: Misinformation Community Edition, developed by Tactical Tech, is available in an easy-accessible, inspiring and creative format, enabling organizations worldwide to host their own local exhibitions. With this innovative and collaborative approach, we empower existing societal networks—libraries, cultural institutions, community centers, maker spaces, and schools across Europe—that are trusted by their own communities.
The Glass Room: Misinformation Community Edition is a Tactical Tech’s project.
