Two Fake News Poetry Performance Workshops took place at the HASTAC Conference in Vancouver, Canada, on May 18, 2019. These were led by the performance scholar and maker, Ioana Jucan in collaboration with Roopa Vasudevan, as part of Wendy Chun's international research project on Verification. In the morning session, small groups of scholars, artists, and activists responded to a poem written previously, a meme (see these in Ephemera, to the left), and short directives written about our affective encounters with social media (available in Ephemera, to the left), to be used as frameworks from which to write a performance script. In the afternoon, new groups received those scripts and made them their own: writing two adapatations or expansions, which they also performed. These are available to the left as "Poems." These scripts will be used for future performances as well as for instructions for affect bots (programmed by Roopa) who will also perform with us in Amsterdam, in Summer 2019. That is, the bots will perform their/our affect too, so that together we can think, feel, and enact together what we learn about fake and real. This final performance will culminate this excursion into new forms of radical digital media literacy, where place-based, collaborative thoughtful and responsive artmaking is the lesson plan, the learning, and the new literacy.
