Meme-tivism for Critical Data Literacy

Meme-tivism for Critical Data Literacy is an exploration on the potential of memes as a critical, informative, and transformative tool for feminist data literacy.

Memes, often characterized by their humorous and viral nature, have become a ubiquitous form of online expression, shaping the way we engage with and understand contemporary issues. By harnessing the visual, participatory nature and vernacular creativity of internet meme culture, can we communicate the uneven distribution of power, control, and knowledge over data and algorithmic systems and seek for feminist data futures through critical and creative literacy methods, mediums, tools, and tactics?

Through a series of community co-design workshops and a co-creation toolkit, Meme-tivism creates and curates a collective archive of memes for critical data literacy as a digital common.
