"Age of Communities"

23-25 @Berlin

May 27-28, 2014 @ Krakow
CONFidence was created in 2005 by a group of enthusiasts that wanted to improve the security of operating systems and applications. Within a few years it transformed into the biggest meeting of hackers and IT security experts in Poland. CONFidence is an endless source of knowledge, an opportunity to improve your skills, exchange experiences with experts and meet international specialists. Technical lectures, practical workshops and relaxed discussions at the party. CONFidence gathers 500 attendees each year: top specialists on IT security from the government, industry, bank sector and universities as well as scientists and software developers.

30 @ Berlin
   In extensive testing, it has been noticed that the information
   sharing and learning during gatherings of interested and skilled
   individuals, commonly referred to as conferences, changes for any
   particular individual over time. While initially most insights
   are gained by attending presentations and working through the
   presented material afterwards, over years the individual, striving
   for a more efficient information retrieval approach, resorts to what
   is known as the hallway track.

11-12 NETWORKED DISRUPTION @Ljubljana (Aksioma)
"The Networked Disruption exhibition is  based on Bazzichelli’s book Networked  Disruption: Rethinking Oppositions in Art, Hacktivism and the Business of  Social Networking (DARC Press, The Digital Aesthetics Research Centre of  Aarhus University, 2013). Bazzichelli’s hypothesis is that mutual  interferences between art, hacktivism and the business of social networking  have changed the meaning and contexts of political and technological criticism.  Hackers and artists have been active agents in business innovation, while at  the same time also undermining business. Artists and hackers use disruptive  techniques of networking within the framework of social media, opening up a  critical perspective towards business to generate unpredictable feedback and  unexpected reactions; business enterprises apply disruption as a form of  innovation to create new markets and network values, which are often just as  unpredictable. Bazzichelli proposes the concept of the Art of Disrupting Business as a form of artistic practice within  the business field of information technology."

"We know that the Internet was originally decentralized, with protocols and services built by hackers. However, with the arrival of the celebrated Web 2.0, centralization and corporations proprietary platforms seem to have taken over." [...] "In the last few years, it has become clear to many that it is not enough to develop free/libre/open source (FLOSS) alternatives, but we also need to re-decentralize the Internet. Many initiatives are being undertaken under this premise (e.g. Ethereum, Diaspora, OwnCloud, MediaGoblin, Sandstorm). These new software tools may also be useful to boost CBPP communities further. In this workshop, we will gather those working around the decentralized FLOSS that could help CBPP/P2P communities. Hackers, academics, activists and interested stakeholders are welcome."

In 2015 it will become a swarm of people on the move for 4 months, travelling across several European countries and stopping along the way to establish 3 different Villages. Artists on the road are invited to propose projects for the entire trip, or parts of it. They will determine their own travelling schedules and use GPS tracking devices to create spontaneous meetings on the road. The Villages are conceived as meeting points as well as production and presentation opportunities."

20-25 Relearn 2015 @Brussels
"""Relearn is a summerschool which welcomes persons, artists, students, teachers from all backgrounds and disciplines. Participants will gather to learn from and teach to each other, beyond the traditional paradigms of education.
Free, Libre and Open Source Software plays a fundamental role at Relearn, as it facilitates a different approach to the tools we commonly use in our practices and lives. For instance, it can allow us to understand the influence that tools themselves exert on the way they are used, or the different social relations and economies that are formed between who creates and uses them. Such a questioning approach to technology feels urgent, in a time in which more and more social, political and personal issues are addressed by solely technological means.
In continuation with the previous editions, Relearn will research convivial, experimental and deviant methods and means in the fields of design, computing and education, challenging the normal roles and separations in them (teacher/student, developer/user, art/life...). """
It will take place in Bruxelles, at Zinneke

"Open source citizenship"
Open Source Bridge’s purpose is to gather a diverse citizenry and inspire one another to make the world a better place through open source technology and open culture principles.

26-28 Jardin Entropique @Rennes, France
To discuss crucial questions about technology today, based on four themes:
    * Can the internet help to reinforce diversity of identity?
    * Can technology encourage the reappropriation by citizens of their environment?
    * How to encourage the appropriation of the freedom of computer science, for increased control in daily online use?
    * How to sustain communication tools that are genuinely free in a context which does not encourage freedom of expression?
Following on from the Breizh Entropy Congress and the Jardin Numérique, this event will include a shared space between the already initiated and the curious. With the aim to increase understanding of the issues, to identify alternatives, to introduce and promote technological reappropriation for a « free » (as in freedom) computer science. In other words, what is freedom of expression in the digital age, and the tools and methods that allow everyone to exercise it.
Debates, conferences, presentations, workshops, creations, performances and other propositions are eagerley awaited!

"The twentieth-century celebrated technology as a way to achieve planetary unity and control. Yet today technics, nature, and human activity seem to combine in increasingly disorienting, uncontrolled compositions in which once-reliable distinctions lose their stability. How did we end up in this world of technological vertigo, this Mobius strip of world and planetary technics, wherein cause and effect, local and global factors, human and non-human agency, perpetually confuse and confound one another’s borders? What governs this constitution (or collision) of forces? And what are the contingent, strategic, or historical events and networks that form durable apparatuses among them? 
This dilemma of global technology and its identity will be the main theme of Technosphere (2015-18), a research project investigating origins and future itineraries of this technical world within a larger series of international events, performances, seminars, and conferences that will take place at HKW over the next four years."

The unique combination of topics    creates a platform where cross-pollination between the areas can occur, and    where new co-operations and thoughts can emerge which allows the participants    to find new inspiration even from areas outside of their own.

Music conjures emotions more intensely than most art forms, and makes it possible to experience the ambiguous effects and possibilities of intentional emotionalisation. CTM 2017 Fear Anger Love seeks to present musicians and artists that are working with emotion in various ways to respond to urgent societal issues and conflicts that increasingly seem to be emotionally driven."

The Transnational Social Strike Meeting, taking place between 19th and 21st May 2017 in Ljubljana at Autonomous factory Rog, will address the divisions we are being forced into. We will discuss the centrality of the Balkan region for the whole European space and continue our reflection on how to find common terrains for our transnational initiative. We will bring a step further the project of building a political infrastructure which helps to organize across the borders and bring together the multiple experiences of insubordination against neoliberalism within and without the workplaces, in order to make the difference in the existing scenario of social crisis. 
The workshops and discussions will address multiple terrains of struggle, trying to establish a political communication among the struggles regarding migrations, freedom of movement, social and worker’s rights, global women’s strike, logistics and the reorganization of production, rights to a decent life, militarization of society, student problems, as well as other social issues.

"For this 2017 LSM we have chosen "Libre and Change" as our main theme which expresses what we want to emphasize for this event. Sharing and changes are on our agenda. Sharing with and into the Free Culture in all its aspects with the general public and with professionals and with institutions as a whole, in order to change and transform the practices of the today's society. In order to do so, this year will have more transversal themes, mixing different audiences and different usages, as well as convivial evening parties to enjoy free creations. The "Cooperative Needs" is a place where people could share and confront ideas and points of view as well as establish new contacts. There will also be a hub of interaction with the audience so as to help, look for and find solutions. Finally, the Professional Fair (2 days) will be the place and time to meet with the people working with the Libre as a main and direct source of income. This will be the opportunity to underline that Free Software oriented business can be successful and sustainable, meanwhile making the Free Culture visible and fostering its value and valorization."

14-16 HackOn @Ruigoord/Amsterdam/NL
HackOn is a participatory event happening in Amsterdam in mid-July on
the Ruigoord terrain. The event is centered around a critical view of
how technology plays a role in society. HackOn was born out of the
hacker ethics, decentralisation, autonomy, critical views, and lulz.
However, we don't limit ourselves to just those topics. We decentralised
by organising a smaller outdoor event in the Netherlands, this creates
autonomy and a way to get other voices heard. HackOn is a
non/anti-commercial event. Your crowdfunded ethical hacking startup can
kindly go fuck itself. HackOn will not become an institution, we'd
rather burn those down. HackOn is organised by anyone who is interested
in contributing. It is an open invitation to participate in co-creating
an environment where knowledge is shared and infrastructure is
decentralised. There is space to organise workshops, debates, present
your ideas or projects, and engage with other inhabitants of the event.
Registration for the event and submission of content can be done early

We have run-away climate change, falling real wages, precarious and zero-hour contracts, the rise of the ‘gig-economy’, social cleansing, and a housing and social care crisis. Around the world, governments have shifted private debt onto public purses, while accelerating neo-liberal reforms and austerity."

"The festival is titled Local & Decentralised and it happens from 22.9 to 24.9 in Suvilahti, Helsinki. Local and decentralised governance seems to happen when collective design and a tangible group effort come together. In order to decentralise temporally the festival and to materialize the festival theme itself, reflecting perhaps on the current edification of Helsinki, from the 15.9 to 21.9 Suvilahti hosts a model construction site by teams participating in the Recycling Olympic Games, who build the main venue of the festival. These new spatial configurations along with existing DIY area such as the skate-park coagulate together with the festival participants to create fluid places where knowledge can emerge and where it can be applied."
(18-24 Pixelache pre-festival)
"Pre-festival and festival activities will happen also at Oranssi premises from 18.9 to 24.9. The role of Oranssi organisation, of Suvilahti permanent tenants and of Pixelache members' contributions as part of the main program, is an important element for the identity of Local & Decentralised."

"Until what seems almost recently, no attempts had been made to publicly discuss the role of Cocktail Robotics as an index for the integration of technological innovations into the human Lebenswelt, or to document the increasing occurrence of radical hedonism in man-machine communication. Roboexotica is an attempt to fill this vacuum. It is the first and, inevitably, the leading festival concerned with cocktail robotics world-wide. A micro mechanical change of paradigm in the age of borderless capital. Alan Turing would doubtless test this out."

13-15 Art & Activism @Leiden/NL
"Resilience Techniques in Times of Crisis: The conference “Art & Activism” aims to understand the force of art to engage and express political sentiment. At the heart of any art that can be called activist is a firm revolutionary belief in the possibility of societies reforming and improving. Behind its obvious involvement with present issues and concerns, activist art is always oriented to shaping an ameliorated future. This public role is not uncontested. The arts are (perpetually) under attack. A sense of crisis, moreover, is widely felt among contemporary artists and activists, who experience precarity, marginalization, and vulnerability on a daily basis and may put their bodies on the line. The idea of crisis, both in the arts and in society, has been widely articulated by scholars and critics. This interdisciplinary conference aims to create a space in which participants from scholarly, artistic and activist backgrounds can learn from and collaborate on a horizontal plane."

The Centre for Postdigital Cultures, Coventry University, UK invites you to its second annual conference, which will explore the phenomenon of 'Pirate Care'. The term Pirate Care condenses two processes that are particularly visible at present. On the one hand, basic care provisions that were previously considered cornerstones of social life are now being pushed towards illegality, as a consequence of geopolitical reordering and the marketisation of social services. At the same time new, technologically-enabled care networks are emerging in opposition to this drive toward illegality.

Sept 1-4 2022
Now, it's the 3rd time (whoot?) that we're organizing this small but fine camp in the wonderful region of Vogtland. (1.-4.09) [1] Located nearby Plauen, Germany it's embedded in a terrific landscape with a wonderful lake just half a bottle of Mate away.
Not feeling like going on a long-distance-ride to the Nethderlands or other camps of this year? Come and grab some good vibes at ours, in the East of Germany! The camp will be pitched for 4 days, on the edge of Campingplatz Gunzenberg, at Talsperre Pöhl, by the chilling and friendly crowd.
The usual amenities (internet, electricity and food) are provided. The last but not least: we'll appreciate your helping hands A LOT, before and especially during the camp.

International Anti-Authoritarian Gatherings

7-9 April 2032
 You may have participated in one of our past three conferences: “Challenging Capitalist Modernity I: Alternative Concepts and the Kurdish Case,” in 2012; “Challenging Capitalist Modernity II: Dissecting Capitalist Modernity — Building Democratic Confederalism,” in 2015; or “Challenging Capitalist Modernity III: Uncovering Democratic Modernity — Resistance, Rebellion and Building the New,” in 2017. For three days, hundreds of students, intellectuals, activists, and movements came together and discussed not only the things they were critical of or the existing obstacles, but also how these obstacles can be overcome and what alternatives these criticisms give rise to. Many ideas from around the world and from the Kurdish freedom movement, and in particular its key thinker, Abdullah Öcalan, came together to strengthen our collective understanding and practice.

Worklab 2023
About the Worklab
For years the worklab is a core format in the artistic research program of ‘’. Worklabs are “unconferences” that can last for several days, to which people are invited to participate via a public open call. Worklabs create a temporary space in which artists (= specialists in the field of technology, design, art, etc.) and external guests can discuss topics from the field of digital technology, art and its social implications. People from different fields and with different backgrounds meet and work together on ideas and designs that will become the starting point for future projects, publications and productions of the current and coming years. The worklabs are both incubators for specific work and open think tanks where ideas, tools, as well as practical and creative approaches are developed and tested.
This programm is part of the project series “aaron´s law” that includes various artistic-technical projects dedicated to Aaron Swartz and developed in close cooperation with ACOnet/net:art coordination center.
Public presentation & meet and greet the artists:

Non Obvious Technological Approaches             7-8-9 July 2023
[tbd] calls on you to take a crowbar to the stack pointer and explore with us the raw limitless potential of the (turing) machine.
We welcome any contribution that will salvage the broken remainders of that dream we once dreamed of free flowing information,                will weaponise the trash from the electronics bin for the creation of noise and the downfall of the smart city,                that creates outside the mind-numbingly boring paradigms of software development,                that takes pride in a carefully placed goto statement,                or that articulates whatever else the struggle for liberation leaves to be discussed...
[tbd] is a participatory event organised by anyone who is interested in contributing. It is an open invitation to participate in co-creating an environment where knowledge is shared and infrastructure is decentralised. There is space                to organise workshops, debates, present your ideas or projects, and engage with other inhabitants of the event. 

July 19-23 @St Imier, Switzerland
Commemorating  the 150th anniversary of the first Anti-authoritarian International, we are meeting in the Swiss Jura mountains from July 19 to 23, 2023. These gatherings aim to bring anarchists together for collective reflection, sharing experiences, and building solidarity across struggles and borders. See our original call for co-organising and our later call for participation for more context.
Over the 5 days and across 12 venues, the gathering offers over 302 workshop sessions, 48 concerts, 36 film screenings, 11 theatre performances, 7 exhibitions and 95 book fair tables to explore.
Check out our FAQ and related pages for more information about how to get to St-Imier, where you find camping and indoor sleeping spaces, vegan or gluten free food and beverages, where to park vehicles, the availability of childcare and help from our care team.

from fragments of freedom to networks of global resistance
The yearly 2.Dh5 festival returns to Ru Paré in Amsterdam for its eighteenth edition from February 23th to 25th 2024.
2.Dh5 is an annual festival for the exchange of radical ideas, strategies and practices by grassroots groups, collective projects and direct action campaigns in the Netherlands and beyond.
This year the urgency of international solidarity is more clear than ever. Join hundreds of others to learn and unlearn, and recognising intersections, contribute to each others’ struggles. Let’s build towards a new and better world based on freedom and solidarity within and across borders.
