String Figures is a project developed by Ailie Rutherford and Bettina Nissen to allow activist, feminist and creative groups working for social justice to support and strengthen each other’s work through de-centralised open-source networks centred on a principle of mutual care.
This mapping process can be used with local and translocal collectives looking to further support each other in anti-capitalist work: https://string-figures-v1-0-2.glitch.me/
The mapping process and symbols are the work of artist Ailie Rutherford https://ailierutherford.com/work/string-figures.
If you are interested in developing or mapping your own network in a facilitated workshop,
please contact either Ailie or Bettina.
Aim and Ethics – collectively devised by String Figures workshop participants.
