New Ways of Reading II - Imagining Accessibility

What cultural and digital strategies could be used to create alternative ways of online publishing, that expand the room for reflection and collectivity? Cultural critical publishing practices require new strategies to respond to the contemporary realities of online media. Manoeuvring between corporate and political powers puts independent publishers in a position that is counterproductive for the role and relevance they ought to have in the social and cultural realm. Creating independent critical content requires plenty of time and effort, and it is not meant to be consumed within seconds. While on the Web 2.0 content is cheap, fast, abundant, and addictive.

PART II – WORKSHOP: IMAGINING ACCESSIBILITY
TUE 18 OCT | 19:00–21:30

How do writers experience online publishing formats in their practice? Do they find them relevant to connect with their readers? Do they have the freedom to explore new ways of writing that facilitates contemporary readers? Are there things writers would like to change in the publishing process, and unlearn from their own practice?

In this session, together with a group of authors, we will discuss the insights of the first workshop and explore both the methods and desires of writers on how to bring their work closer to their audiences.

New Ways of Reading is developed within The New Social: Hybrid Strategies for Cultural Spaces program as a collaboration between Framer Framed and initiators of Beyond the Essay­­Ania Molenda and Andrea Prins. The goal of The New Social is conducting experiments to document and develop strategies that sprung out of necessity during the pandemic. Beyond the Essay is a research project that aims to re-imagine the essay format for new audiences and online media.
