In a year that’s felt like one giant 24-hour online meeting, it’s been difficult to collectively motivate ourselves to organize our 3rd annual 24-Hour Hangout for International Women’s Day. One year ago, socializing on a virtual call with friends and strangers from across the globe for a ridiculous amount of time sounded exciting, even sort of quaint. Now? Well, the novelty has worn off. But, this is Alphabettes! We don’t throw in the towel on crazy! We roll up our sleeves and embrace the chaos.
Care to join us?
Here’s how it works:
From 12am (0:00) EST to 11:59pm (23:59) EST on March 8, stop by for conversations on type, design, the universe, what’s in that dreaded ‘desktop’ folder on our desktop, whatever! Some times may be more spontaneous and chatty, other hours might be filled with activities and presentations.
Some fun plans throughout the day:
10am EST: Ulrike chats with Elena Albertoni about The Pre-Vinylettes
11am EST: Type Education Chat
12pm EST: Handwriting fun with Eleni B.
4pm EST: Dina Benbrahim + Lisa Maione talk about design education
5pm EST: La Hora Spanish!
6pm EST: Typecooker (ESP, ENG)
9pm EST: Mónica Munguía chats about her foundry, Momutype, and TypeThursday México City
10pm EST: Chatting about type event organization
and more! Surprises! Fun! Chats!
Who can attend:
You! All are welcome* to stop by when you can and leave when you need. Video is possible but just audio is fine, too. Or, just help the chat stay aflame. Keep an eye on this post, Twitter, and Instagram for any updates and help us spread the word! WOMEN = FUN.
