Reflections on Double Dabble

Saturday 4 January 2017 at The Shipley Art Gallery in Gateshead, Tyne and Wear

Double Dabble was a  one-day participatory creative workshop organised by Digital Civics CDT students Angelika Strohmayer and Janis Meissner, of fempower.tech and the Open Lab at Newcastle University.  

The aim of #doubledabble was to provide an event where feminist researchers, practitioners and makers could meet in order to work and play together to create a fun and interactive day ,full of tinkering and creativity.

This event was organised by Digital Civics CDT Students  Angelika Strohmayer and Janis Meissner of fempower.tech, who are a group of intersectional feminist researchers who aim to raise awareness of feminist issues in HCI, based at the Open Lab at Newcastle University. Double Dabble was made possible after they received funding from the Feminist and Women’s Studies Association and DEN to organise this national workshop, which attracted 30 attendees.

DEN would like to thank fempower.tech for organising this one-day activity which members of the DEN community could benefit from. Attendees included CDT students and researchers from the Media & Ars Technology CDT at Queen Mary University of London, the Digital Civics CDT at Newcastle University and the HighWire CDT at Lancaster University.
