AHAcktitude 2009

27-28-29th November, Milan, Italy

Organised by:
aha {AT} lists.ecn.org and AHA:Activism-Hacking-Artivism

AHAcktitude '09 is the second collective meeting for the community of 
the aha {AT} ecn.org mailing list, one of the lists hosted by the historical 
independent server Isole Nella Rete (Islands in the Net), and at the 
core of the networking project AHA:Activism-Hacking-Artivism.

The idea of AHAcktitude came about from the desire of the more than 600 
members of the aha {AT} lists.ecn.org to be able to meet. For the first time 
after the creation of the mailing list (30th of December 2002) this 
happened last year in Venice at the S.A.L.E. Docks. AHAcktitude '09 is 
the second stop point for this path whose centre is to discuss themes 
like artistic, political and technological activism. The meeting will be 
held in Milan on the 27-28-29th of November at the Social Centre 
Cantiere and will be proposing to create networks, share projects and 
build new activist interventions for the future.

By adopting the same strategy as Hackmeetings, AHAcktitude is organised 
and managed directly by the participants who can propose and share 
seminars or projects via the aha {AT} lists.ecn.org list. AHAcktitude began 
as a space for dialogue and sharing, with the purpose of learning and 
spreading practices and knowledge in a free environment, without 
censorship. Everyone can use the AHAcktitude wiki to participate: it is 
a shared space for the presentation of projects, ideas, files, 
documents, music, etc.

# A bit of history

AHA:Activism-Hacking-Artivism is an artistic networking project founded 
in 2001 by Tatiana Bazzichelli aka T_Bazz. AHA is a networking 
initiative activated by contamination/integration of multiple media and 
events, where the common denominator is hacktivism and artistic and 
political activism. Activism-Hacking-Artivism focuses on artists and 
hacktivists in Italy and abroad that use media in an independent way, 
through the organisation of exhibitions, events, and collective meetings 
organised by T_Bazz along with other curators that change accordingly.

The core of the project AHA is the community that develops in the 
mailing-list aha {AT} lists.ecn.org, where AHAcktitude comes from. The 
mailing-list aha {AT} lists.ecn.org is administered by Lo_Bo, Dedalus and 
Gionatan, and today counts more than 600 subscribers and it is the 
sister mailing-list of the international list Nettime.
The AHA: Activism-Hacking-Artivism project won an Honorary Mention in 
the Digital Communities cathegory of Prix Ars Electronica  at the ARS 
Electronica Festival in Linz (AU) in September 2007.
