Our Networks 2047: Redistributing the Future Conference Program
We’ve all been living through these weeks where decades happen. Looking back on our past we find neither dystopia nor utopia. Instead, our history winds in-between, with setbacks and sudden leaps toward the internet and web we want. In order to even try and get there we’ve had to fight to transform the entire world. While there have been great strides in remaking where we live, work, and play as we tackle the interleaved crises of climate, capitalism, and co-option. There are still looming challenges and lingering concerns.
For an event that has been held alongside these struggles, Our Networks has been a place to share victories and defeats together. Out of a sense of large-scale ruin, we have kept inventing hope, the kind that isn’t optimism, but rather a discipline we practice every single day. In 2047 it feels like we are at another critical juncture, just like we were in 2022 and 2035.
So once again, what will we make of our futures? How do we learn from our pasts? How do we extend the forms of redistribution and accountability in the spaces, movements, collectives, and institutions that have been our inspirations and homes for the last few decades?
