Digital Campus Encampment

We are building digital student encampments for disabled students and others who cannot attend encampments in person for safety reasons. The site was inspired by Pandemic Solidarity 4 Life, Maiamama’s CUJ Digital Studios, and our Virtual Pride gathertown. This project is produced by Calling Up Justice and led by Claudia Alick, J Mase III, and those most impacted.

MAPS AND ACTIVITIES

You’re character will spawn into this main encampment space. You can access the code of conduct, and accessibility directions from the information booths by the entrance. You can socialize with other participants, write on graffiti boards, access tents with links to information about other student encampments, demands, disability justice frameworks, history, and resources from Jewish Voice for Peace, Disability Visibility, and We Charge Genocide TV. Check out the library and music jukebox for protest music and free books on Palestine.

To the left you will find the Quiet Garden for silent contemplation and self-regulation. To right you will find the East encampment with more tents and space for socializing.

Down the road you will find our offices. These include our Media Office for Press Inquires, The Operation Olive Branch Garden full of mutual aid links, a Gathertown basic information booth, a Calling Up justice LinkTree, a comments and suggestions office, and an info booth that leads to this website page!

From the offices you can take the stairs down to the lounge and enjoy free Palestine and anti-genocide spoken work poetry. This section also has a stage that will allow you to be heard by everyone in the room. You can enter the Board Game Cafe and play piano, listen to chill music, play a variety of board games and justice based videogames. Check out our curated selection and have fun!

From the offices take the steps up to the ALL HANDS on our roof. This section is for public speaking, plays, and other media. This rooftop garden allows for a speaker to be heard by a large crowd. You can witness The Gaza Monologues, Every 28 Hours Plays Palestine Podcast, and Voices from The Ground here.

Encampment Cats!

The proliferation of encampment cats is a sign that our open space technology design is working! Once participants have familiarized themselves with the space and begin regularly spending time there we upgrade them to members. Members have the ability to add elements to the space and become full contributors.

Some elements like the digital welcome table feature original assets like pixel hand-sanitizer. They are replicating items you would find in a physical campus encampment. Other items are hyperlinked to books, websites, educational resources, and art. A few days ago someone added a cat to a tent and this inspired others to add more cats. This is evidence of a healthy growing community where everyone is exercising leadership.
