The Civic Beat is a collective of researchers, writers and artists exploring the intersection of creativity, geopolitics and the internet. We support each other in our goals to engage the public through writing, talks, workshops and exhibitions.

We have led workshops and exhibitions in spaces such as the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Mozilla Festival Open Artist Studio (curated by the V&A Museum and Tate Modern), the Asian Art Museum, the Museum of the Moving Image, the ACLU and RightsCon, and we've been producing what Net Monitor called "the cutest map of the internet" – a world map of animal memes in collaboration with over a dozen internet culture researchers.
