<nettime> AHA Community meeting in Venice

The National AHA Community meeting at the S.A.L.E. in Venice

The national ahaCamping meeting will take place on the 3rd, 4th and 5th 
of October 2008 at the S.A.L.E in Venice (The Salt Warehouses, Dorsoduro 
187-188). The AHA mailing list, hosted by the Italian independent server 
Isole Nella Rete (Islands in the Net), is the core of the networking 
project AHA:Activism-Hacking-Artivism <http://www.ecn.org/aha>, which 
was founded in 2001 by Tatiana Bazzichelli aka T_Bazz and was awarded in 
2007 at the ARS Electronica Festival in Linz with an Honorary Mention.

The ahaCamp was created from the need of approximately 600 subscribers 
of aha {AT} ecn.org to meet each other for the first time face to face, to 
discuss the themes of artistic, political and technological activism, in 
a situation that is very different to that which existed when the list 
was initially created. Themes such as the analysis of Web 2.0 (in 
economical, social and technological terms), the relationships between 
artistic activities and digital technologies, and the linguistic and 
relational deconstruction of "communication" practices are just a few of 
the core themes of the meeting. The meeting aims to create nets, to 
enable the sharing of projects and to build new interventions for the 
future in artistic and technological fields. The ahaCamp therefore 
exists as a space whereby to discuss and share knowledge, with the 
objective of learning and sharing practices and knowledge in a free 
environment without censorship.

By adopting the same strategies of Hackmeetings 
(http://www.hackmeeting.org), the ahaCamp is organised and managed 
directly by the participants, who can suggest seminars or projects that 
they intend to share on the list as well as on the free and open wiki 
created especially for the occasion: (http://isole.ecn.org/aha/camper/): 
a nomadic space that offers further possibilities other than the list in 
order to share projects, ideas, files, videos, documents, music, etc..

AHA:Activism-Hacking-Artivism is an artistic networking project founded 
in 2001 by Tatiana Bazzichelli aka T_Bazz. AHA is a networking operation 
created by diverse subjects and activated by contamination/integration 
of a multitude of media and events, where the common denominator is 
hacktivism and artistic and political activism. AHA: 
Activism-Hacking-Artivism focuses on the activist collectives in Italy 
and abroad that use media in an independent fashion, through 
exhibitions, events, and meetings organised by T_Bazz along with other 
curators that change accordingly.

The fundamental key aspect of the AHA project is the community that 
develops in the mailing list aha {AT} ecn.org, created on the 30th of 
December 2002. The mailing list is moderated by T_Bazz (Tatiana 
Bazzichelli), Eo_Call (Eleonora Calvelli) and Lo|Bo, and today counts 
almost 600 subscribers and is a sister of the international mailing list 
Nettime. The AHA: Activism-Hacking-Artivism project was awarded in 
September 2007 at the ARS Electronica Festival in Linz (AU) receiving an 
Honorary Mention in the Digital Communities category of the Prix Ars
