Primavera Hacker 2017
2-3 December @ Santiago, Chile http://phacker.org
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."

"Age of Communities"
30 @ Berlin
Darklab PH NEUTRAL / PXE
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.

"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."

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.

- 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?
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."

27-II/5 CTM Festival @Berlin/DE
"Fear, Anger and Love are entry points into confrontation with desire, empathy, despair, grief, euphoria, hatred, fragility, disgust, nihilism, rage, loneliness and other sensations. 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."

19-21 TSS / TRANSNATIONAL SOCIAL STRIKE #@Rog @Ljubljana/Slovenia
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.

1-7 Libre Software Meeting, Saint-Étienne, France
"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

17-30 NOMADIC VILLAGE 2017 @Folkestone, UK

Participants preferably should come to the Nomadic Village with their own mobile abodes, from which we will create a small village; an autonomous environment in which we can dedicate ourselves to the projects, form spontaneous collaborations and immerse in the dynamics of a micro society. We will live and work for two weeks quite visibly to the public. We will follow our own set of rules or non-rules, illustrating our attitudes through our practice as well as through our presence."

1-3 Fast Forward Festival 2017 @UK
Hosted by Plan C
"It’s been nine years since the start of the economic crisis and all through that time, whether stock markets dip or recover, we’ve suffered a worsening economic, environmental and social crisis. 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."

22-24 Pixelache @Helsinki/Finland
"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."

"European CoHousing and Collaborative Housing projects, professionals, researchers and activists will gather in Berlin in October 6 - 8, 2017 to present and discuss current initiatives and strategies in the framework of the EXPERIMENTDAYS17.

23-27 Tenerife Collaborative @Tenerife,Canarias/ES
"An opportunity to discover the keys that encourage the economic paradigm shift and to explore the initiatives that put it into practice. An opportunity to receive advanced and intensive training on the other economies at the hands of the best experts. An opportunity for local collaborative projects and initiatives to get to know each other and connect and advance in the construction of a collaborative ecosystem in Tenerife and the Canary Islands [...]
How to develop a true sharing economy focused in the benefits of all and not in the profits of a few global platforms?
How to foster collaborative territories that strengthen capacities, encourage creativity and boost the collective intelligence of its inhabitants?
How to adapt the emerging experiences of collaborative and commons cities to insular contexts?
How to renew and update the processes of participation and citizen collaboration mechanisms to take advantage of the possibilities offered by new technologies?"
23-26 Roböxotica 2017 @REAKTOR, Vienna/AT
Festival for Cocktailrobotics since 1999
"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."

A new and vibrating idea for 2015 would be to organize a „Gathering“ where creative people from all corners of the world will discuss themes such as the following : the renewal of the Festival and, very importantly, to define the elements that make up the Spirit of the Festival and thus find a way to make the Festival happen again in 2016.
This event should not be a lame series of seminars . It should be a vocal ,thoughtful , active and interactive happening. Everything goes, nothing forced !
