Message of solidarity following the earthquake in Morocco

We are devastated by the destruction in the aftermath of the Friday evening 8 September earthquake in Morocco. Our thoughts are with our friends and colleagues and all who have been impacted. We offer our deepest condolences for those you have lost, and hope you are reunited with missing loved ones soon.

Thousands of people have died, are dying as we speak, or are badly injured. Many more are homeless and severely traumatised. The regions of Ouarzazate, El Haouz, Chichawa, and Taroudant belong to a part of Morocco that still carries the scars of colonial underdevelopment and postcolonial marginalization. At TITiPI, we are especially sad to see how structural and deliberate infrastructural negligence has lead to many more additional deaths.

The Institute for Technology in the Public Interest (TITiPI) is a trans-practice gathering of activists, artists, engineers and theorists initiated by Miriyam Aouragh, Seda Gürses, Helen Pritchard and Femke Snelting. We convene communities to articulate, activate and re-imagine together what computational technologies in the “public interest” might be when “public interest” is always in-the-making. We develop tools from feminisms, queer theory, computation, intersectionality, anti-coloniality, disability studies, historical materialism and artistic practice to generate currently inexistent vocabularies, imaginaries and methodologies. TITiPI functions as an infrastructure to establish new ways in which socio-technical practices and technologies might support the public interest.

Our activities include: workshops, lectures, bugreporting, consultancy, reading groups, policy analysis, public events, performances, exhibitions, audits, theory making, training, and publishing.
