The Slow Gif Movement Launch - 15 August

Award-winning artist Rhiannon Armstrong brings hers and others’ lived experience of neurodiversity to an understanding of how GIF culture is currently increasing the hostility of online space. The Slow GIF Movement seeks to rectify that with the creation of calming, gently looping GIFs and an invitation to others to take up the cause. 
 
The Slow GIF Movement is offered as a public health intervention in the online world: the act of making and sharing them becomes an intervention in the environment; an act of solidarity with disabled people and others who find hostility in online social space, and a way to disseminate a collection of art works.
