Hands On

The Intersectional AI Toolkit argues that anyone should be able to understand what AI is and to help imagine what AI ought to be. The toolkit is a collaborative collection of zines that introduce intersectional approaches to AI (IAI), building on established but marginalized practices to fundamentally reshape the development and use of AI technologies. In this AI-skills and zine-making workshop, participants can join in co-authoring the Intersectional AI Toolkit.

No special expertise is required. Instead, we are co-learning and co-creating, invested in what all of us have to teach each other. We will investigate key questions around how AI affects us differently, what we need to understand about AI in order to reshape it, and (most importantly) what shapes we want AI to take in order to be more ethical and equitable. By the end of the session, the result will be a handmade booklet imagining new AI futures—ready made to print at home and share online.
