Code+Resistance

In a time of executive orders and alternative facts, how can coders, technologists and artists find a meaningful voice? How can we learn from the work of long-time activists and organizers, and support their work on the ground? Can we move beyond tech solutionism? How does a community dominated by young white men embrace intersectionality?

The Format


In this one-day summit, we’ll try to answer these questions and draw a path forward for effective, inclusive resistance. Structured as an ‘un-conference’, code+resistance provides a forum for every attendee to lead discussions, present work, teach workshops and devise new models for collaboration.

Who Should Attend?

Code+Resistance is open to coders + non coders, activists and would-be-activists, organizers and those looking to be organized. We’re committed to assembling a diverse set of voices, and to providing a safe space for conversation.

The Setting


Code+Resistance will be held at Intermedia Arts, a multi-cultural, multi-disciplinary arts space in Minneapolis, MN.
 Transportation will be provided between the summit venue and the Millennium hotel.
