Abstract (up to 100 words)

In the time when discussing the 'new normal' in media is a dominant trend of 'developed' world, suppressed and critical voices are questioning who's Normal it was to start with… What wiki practices are considered normal (How? Who? When? Why? they fail). This workshop aspires to help inform, research, imagine and prototype what could be alternatives, or even appropriations that foreground care and needs for those who are far from assumed norms. WikiWiki%Lohi?

How will this session be beneficial for the communities in the region of Central and Eastern Europe?

By looking into challenging the doctrine of single and objective point of view, content and participation gaps, governance models/issues, assumptions embedded in user interface and experience, but also addressing needs for safe(r) space (considering ‘others’ - deconstructing norms, especially self-imposed ones and authoritarian) we hope to address some of the topics from 2030 strategy and new Code of Conduct.

Do you plan to pre-record a video with a presentation?
