Furious & Curious

Break & Build

Code & Chaos

Eclectic Tech Carnival is a feminist tech skill-share gathering of feminist FLINTA*s [1] who critically explore and develop everyday information technologies in the context of free open software and open hardware movements. Together we want to destroy patriarchal and racist structures to build better futures.

Let’s chew on the roots of control and domination. Hack it furiously! Build it curiously!

Eclectic Tech Carnival began in 2001, inspired by the hack meetings that started taking place at the end of the 90’s. Spread over several days, people meet in real life to talk about computers, networks, programming, and the politics behind it all, and to share creative work.

Eclectic Tech Carnival is unique in that it has a feminist approach that expands the hack meetings’ reflection on politics with an intersectionalist point of view. Besides workshops, there will be space for people to be politically, performatively and artistically active. Everyone is a volunteer and will take on tasks during the event.
