SCHEDULE

11am-1pm – Indymedia reporting from the streets (FR/EN)

In this hands-on workshop with the CKUT news collective, we will share our experiences in reporting from Montreal street demos. Using basic tools such as cell phones, digital recorders, and free software, we will show participants how to quickly produce quality reports, as well as show people how to stay safe from the cops, and how to respect people’s anonymity and privacy.

1pm – 3pm – FemCrypt (Presented by FemHack & Koumbit) (FR/EN)

The objective of this workshop is to introduce you to the concepts of encryption more generally and to chat and email encryption practices more specifically. The workshop will follow a anarcha-feminist pedagogy and expect everyone to create an anti-oppressive and politicized space.

FemHack is an autonomous group from Montreal whose mission is to create an empowering and inspiring environment for activists (particularly feminist, queer, trans and people of color) to experiment with technology in order to hack patriarchy, capitalism and other systems of oppression. Koumbit provides web and tech services, based on values of horizontality, freedom and solidarity.

3pm-5pm – FM – Transmitter Building Workshop – with CKUT Radio (EN/FR)

Pull back the veil on radio transmission and mass communication by building your own FM radio transmitter. We will pull out our soldering irons and assemble all the parts necessary to start up a live broadcast. There will be a cost of $10 for each FM transmitter kit. This cost can be split among a few participants, and you can keep your transmitter after the workshop.
