Quotidian is the smartphone app developed by the GRACE Smartphone App Design Group. Quotidian is an interactive and multisensorial app that provides users with intersectional feminist quotes from all around the world. It was developed through a participatory design process involving the communities in which the GRACE researchers are embedded. Ideas were gathered from the bottom-up, leading to the development of the app concept, of a first prototype, and a growing collection of quotes.
Quotidian is based on an ethic of inclusion, manifest in the content and embodied by the users. Quotidian carries the voices of a diverse range of feminisms, and it offers the user the opportunity to add their own. These voices are brought together through intuitive, accessible, and responsive design. Quotidian is an example of ICT done otherwise, exploring the possibilities of community sourced, participatory alternatives to neoliberal and market-oriented internet technologies development.
