'''to Organise and Support Activities during the Queer, Trans* and Feminist Village at the CCCamp'''
 
 
 
<nowiki>
 
From August 13 to 17, 2015, the Chaos Communication Camp (CCC), an
 
international, five-day open-air event for hackers, makers and geeks
 
of all genders will take place in Ziegeleipark Mildenberg* near
 
Berlin, Germany. As the CCCamp** provides a space for sharing
 
technical, social, and political ideas every 4 year, this is an
 
opportunity not to miss. This year, a self-organised group of
 
dedicated people will organise in a Do It Yourself (DIY) and Do it
 
With Others (DIWO) fashion a queer, trans* and feminist village to
 
bring visibility to feminist, queer and trans* hacking approaches,
 
create a safe space*** within the larger CCCamp, continue to build a
 
global community around those issues and inspire each other.
 
 
 
The queer, trans* and feminist village will be pluralistic, which
 
means it will include intersectional, feminist, trans*, genderqueer
 
and race-sensitive viewpoints, among others, that are committed to the
 
central principles of agency, fulfillment, empowerment, diversity, and
 
social justice. Moreover, a long tradition of free software and free
 
culture allow us to amplify hardware and software to hack:
 
bodies, gender, academia, maternity and child-rearing, operating
 
systems, distributed networks and other devices.We refer to the
 
terms hacking, making and geeking with a full understanding of
 
their histories and limitations.
 
 
 
Over the years a global community of feminist, queer and trans*
 
hackers, makers and geeks has grown in the global south and global
 
north and we hope to build on this momentum to invite submissions that
 
aim at bringing visibility to new and old feminist, queer, trans* and
 
anti-colonial hacker/maker/geek practices, to the groups and
 
collectives that are doing the work, to examples of resistance to
 
and support of people subjected to online/offline sexism, violence
 
and/or harassment and to any other issues that are of concern to the
 
community. We seek contributions from feminist, queer, trans* and people
 
of color in addition to allies**** in any formats, be it hands-on
 
workshops, discussions, presentations, artistic installations, 
 
performance, projections, concerts or whatever activity you think
 
could add to the discussion.
 
 
 
To register your activity, you can either add it in a DIY way by using
 
our wiki at
 
https://events.ccc.de/camp/2015/wiki/Village:Queer_Feminist_Geeks
 
(you need to create an account to do so) and/or send your short
 
submission to: queerfeministgeeks@lists.riseup.net. Note that there
 
are no deadlines for submitting your proposal(s), and spontaneous
 
activities will be welcomed, but we do encourage you to share your
 
plans in advance with us! This will help create enthusiasm around
 
our village and its scheduled content.
 
 
 
We are also looking for people who want to help set up, support
 
(financially for instance), and simply be part of the village or take
 
part in the activities. If you want to be involved we suggest you
 
register to the list at:
 
https://lists.riseup.net/www/subscribe/queerfeministgeeks
 
 
 
It will be the first time at a CCCamp that a queer, trans* and
 
feminist village will be set up, so don't miss it!

** The CCCamp is not a free event.  However, they are mindful that it
 
is not everyone who has the financial means to purchase a ticket.
 
If this is your case, please let us know.
 
 
 
*** Safe spaces can be understood as spaces of non-oppression,
 
non-hierarchy, and non-discrimination, whether explicit, through a
 
community agreement, or implicit through the sharing of values. They
 
enable members of a group to flourish, empower themselves and create
 
community. They are also about pushing boundaries to confront all
 
forms of sexism, racism and ablesim, among others, as these are values
 
we internalize in our societies growing up. Safe spaces are an
 
opportunity to learn more about ourselves and others and to confront this
 
internalised oppression.
 
 
 
****  An ally is someone who wants to support a "disadvantaged" group,
 
but is not part of that group (e.g. men are allies when it comes to
 
women's rights issues, white people are allies when it comes to people
 
of color and indigenous issues, etc.)

== The Village ==
 
 
 
This assembly is home to all queer|feminist people attending camp to find each other & hang out. If there are enough of us, it should be easy to make this assembly possible & wonderful. So please join and help to realize this! :)
 
 
 
We are a few queer/feminist/trans*/intersectional people who want to meet each other, feel safe, and make friends. You can bring yourself, drinks, food, or anything you like. We will discuss about what it's like to identify as queer in tech, as a feminist, as an intersectional person concerned with oppression in a predominantly white-male-heterosexual context.
 
 
 
This assembly is meant to be a safe space. Safe spaces can be understood as spaces of non-oppression, non-hierarchy, and non-discrimination, whether explicit, through a community agreement, or implicit through the sharing of values. They enable members of a group to flourish, empower themselves and create community. They are also about pushing boundaries to confront all forms of sexism, racism and ablesim, among others, as these are values we internalize in our societies growing up. Safe spaces are an opportunity to learn more about ourself and others to confront these internalised oppression.
 
 
 
If you do not self-identify as queer and feminist, you are allowed to attend but please be mindful to not take up all the space for yourself, like by asking questions that are answered in easily accessible resources such as the Geek Feminism Wiki. This is neither a place to ask people what they mean by basic terms such as "privilege" or "toxic masculinity", nor for discussing these terms. Educate yourself via the Wiki.
 
 
 
Maybe it's nicer to ask people what's their preferred pronoun if you're not sure. "Are you a boy or a girl" is not an accepted question.
