Digital Justice Lab Workshop: Mapping Digital Futures

October 23 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

| Free for Members

In this workshop, we will reimagine the digital future of Toronto and what it could look like in 2040. Together we will build narratives about the future and map out local policy recommendations in relation to Sidewalk Labs’ Smart City plans.

Mapping Digital Futures is part of a series of workshops presented in partnership with Digital Justice Lab for Age of You.

The Digital Justice Labs (DJL) mission is to focus on building a more just and equitable future. DJL engages with diverse communities to build alternative digital futures. Working alongside technologists, community activists and policymakers, DJL helps to shape a better understanding of technology and its impact on communities across the country. Through capacity building, public engagement and continuous collaboration, DJL supports communities in making informed decisions around digital issues. Digital Justice Lab is a project of Tides Canada, a registered Canadian charity dedicated to providing uncommon solutions for the common good.

Digital Justice Lab Workshop: Mapping Data Bodies

December 5 @ 6:00 pm

| Free for Members

From the apps we use on our devices to the surveillance systems on city streets, we live in a datafied world, in which information about us is being collected on a daily basis. In this workshop, we will navigate the impact of datafication to form a better understanding of our “data bodies” and how they are used, stored and shared by governments and corporations.
