Hackistan experimenting > new models > smart & impactful solutions for the future we want - #hacktivism | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

The aim of Hackistan (http://Hackistan.be) is to gather people who want to save the world, and let them collaborate efficiently towards emancipation around projects with societal and environmental impact.

 

In a trust-based framework, our goal is offer individuals and projects the best human, digital, financial and infrastructure existing resources - which are btw often underused-, within what we call a vertuous environment (mutualistic, redistributive).

 

This framework should allow these people and projects to connect more efficiently with resourceful partners (public/private actors, impact investors, Foundations, infrastructure managers).

Technically, we bootstrap this in Brussels by offering a working space, organizing open topic-wise events and private retreats for the collective members, as well as listening as much to the needs/obstacles/fears/ambitions from the people in the existing ecosystem. We aim at lifting up all fictive barriers (linguistic, disciplinary, scientific, industrial, individual) that brakes down the emergence pace of useful solutions.

 

Enspiral, Sensorica and many other initiatives are highly inspiring to us, we try to build something which relates directly to the specificities of the Belgian environment (a nd local opportunities aswell).

ICAS Festival gives tool for sound exploration future - April 27 > May 3 // #soundart #mediaart | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

2015 edition of ICAS (International Cities of Advanced Sound network) that will start on 27 of April in Dresden, Germany, will introduce this year again an adequate platform for discussions and presentations of new projects at the crossroads of music, technology and arts.


The program is likely to be hectic with its high-level merge of club concerts, outdoor interventions, multi-day conference programme, film series, robot/hacklab formats, and the exhibition connecting to the general theme of Tools For An Unknown Future, but you can expect to have some good surprise.

Né de la volonté de créer un espace entièrement dédié à l’expérimentation textile, DataPaulette est une extension du hackerspace de la Blackboxe. Les projets qui émergent de cet atelier sont à la croisée de l’art textile, de la recherche scientifique et des technologies numériques.

 

Ouvert et pluridisciplinaire, il accueille tous ceux qui souhaitent partager leurs expériences et découvrir des nouvelles techniques en participant à des projets collectifs.

 

Hébergé par le Jardin d'Alice DataPaulette est un atelier textile et un réseau de passionnés qui contribuent à faire évoluer des pratiques traditionnelles à travers une pratique de savoir-faire textiles, informatiques et électroniques.
