HacktionLab is a regular convergence space where activists interested and/or working in the areas of alternative media, renewable energy, on-line video distribution, free software or any other form of activism that utilises technology can get together and plan how to better harness the technology (or not) to support grass roots social movements.

  • Finally various local HacktionLab collectives are the throes of organising workshop events in their local areas. Get on the list and get in touch if you're interested in organising, giving or attending a workshop.

Previous HacktionLab events and activities

We have had seven great HacktionLabs so far, three rural skills-share events and four urban hacklabs. We've also been involved in bringing tech to and running workshops at a number of events:

  • June 2010: BarnCamp 2010 - the third edition of our summer outing took place between 11 - 13 June 2010 in the Wye Valley. Retitled BarnCamp we focused on a turning down the tech to make it an event accessible to all with workshops including how to forage for food, how to make a slingshot and the ubiquitous how to encrypt your life. With around 65 attendees, this was our most successful and well-received HacktionLab event so far.
