Performing Wireless: Making a Human Mesh

Mesh networks can empower communities to build open networks across diverse geographies and resist the capitalist-consumer model of private Internet service provision. We will explore this potential through a performance workshop in which everyone co-designs a network and problem solves around its implementation. Participants will play the roles of geographical, technological, and human actors involved in establishing and maintaining a community wireless network.
