F(eminist)H(ack)M(eetings) are a series of research meetings and workshops that are initiated by Varia (https://vvvvvvaria.org/) in Rotterdam. They explore the potentialities and imaginaries of feminist technological collectives. These gatherings aim to challenge who counts as a hacker, and what counts as hacking. The diverse activities of these gatherings includes sociopolitical discussions around technology and feminism, storytelling, prototyping and skill-sharing, as well as art experiments. The sessions are open for anyone interested in technology and the processes of shaping it, to discuss and work together in four thematic sections.

SPREAD, a collaboration between art stages SIGN and Het resort and Floor van Meeuwen, arose from a shared interest in DIY making culture and the need for unruly initiatives. It is a recurring festival that focuses on self-published art; booklets, zines and prints. SPREAD 2021 takes place at 3 nearby locations in the city of Groningen and in the public space. In 10 days, the creation, distribution and communicative importance of self-published art is brought to the attention. This through. a meaning market, meaning library, workshops, lectures, events, interventions, distribution activities, incl. digital pendants. SPREAD examines the content, form and distribution of zines and allows makers from the Netherlands and peripheral areas and communities from abroad to come together, creating connections, experiment, get inspiration and new ideas and works. SPREAD focuses on zines as a form of communication, on national and international zine networks and compares each other's expressions and products, including circumstances.
