Hackers & Designers Fall Talks: ‘Open* Tools for collective organising'

Saturday 27 November 2021
AHK Culture Club
Kattenburgerstraat 5

Join the H&D Fall Talks! By connecting to other self-organized communities we want to exchange insights on the peculiarities of different tool ecologies, their situatedness, their limits and possibilities. What are the creative and critical potentials of the tools that allow us to organize ourselves as collectives? What are context-specific, social-technical codes and practices involved in collective organizing? What are ways to challenge ourselves and our tools in terms of durability, accessibility, openness, and creative output?

H&D invites creative practitioners, designers, artists, coders, system administrators, and disobedient users to join in reflecting and reimagining tool-relationships evolving from community organizing practices.
