This will be a workshop on privacy and digital security with a critical and holistic perspective. It is especially targeted to activists and people working in social groups, who want to improve their digital practices and rethink about these issues. We will map and analyze our digital routines, identify risks and seek together discourses, strategies and tools with which to facing vulnerabilities already everyday. The methodology of the workshop is eminently practical and will be developed through collective action-reflection dynamics, games and theatrical techniques, without making direct use of technologies or software. Prior technical knowledge is not necessary. The workshop intends to pay special attention to mutual care and to promote an experience of integral self-awareness around the security and risks of activism and social action in networks.
