RSVPed Attending BarnCamp – Upgrade Your Activism – Rural skillsharing event in the Wye Valley

BarnCamp is a low-cost rural DIY skill-sharing event started by UK tech collective Hacktionlab. It is open to everyone: activists, campaigners, people involved in social and community groups, and anybody else with an interest in technology and how to subvert it and put it to good use. All skill levels are invited and we promise that workshops are not too geeky due to our infamous nerd gag

Looking forward to this!Β  Camping, tech, and activism, all in the lovely Wye Valley.

This talk is aimed at those interested in learning more about anarchism and will also include an overview of the many anarchist groups you can get involved with.

An urban fiction thriller set in a cyberpunk world, New Clone City tells the story of a down-at-heel metropolis. A melting pot of tribes, technology, poverty, and chaos. New Clone City is a rollicking compulsive read, as queer and captivating as its inhabitants.

This is a slipstream world where a refugee crisis looms, the environment is in chaos, and an authoritarian political movement threatens the very fabric of the city. These dark forces battle a colourful cast of heroes, from anarchist rednecks to genderfluid sex workers.

RSVPed Attending Race & The New Economy: STIR Magazine Winter Launch

Marginalised workers and particularly those within Black, Asian and Latino communities, are most likely to fall into precarious work and the first to be left behind by the rise of automation and the gig-economy. We’ll be asking: β€œCan current projects that aim to work as alternatives to neoliberalism also work for racial justice? And how can we mitigate the racialised impact of the precarious work through the way we organise?”
