A new announcement: CyPEC -the Australasian summit of cyberfeminism

I am pleased to announce an expansion of the scope of Night's Edge with the addition of CyPEC - the Australasian summit of cyberfeminism. Thanks to an enthusiastic volunteer, CyPEC will be joining us at the Convention.

This will add a greater scope of programming and hopefully make for a much more enjoyabe and rounded convention.

To quote from the CyPEC web page:
To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the First Cyberfeminist International, the KanguerillaGirls collective will host a series of discussions within Night’s Edge, a cyberpunk conference being held at the Emerald Hotel, Perth, 8th – 10th November 2007.

Cyberfeminists from near and far are invited to join us for cyberfeminist discussion and celebration. Panels and discussions planned include ‘cyberfeminist herstory and cyberfeminism now’, ‘open source for grrls’, ‘I’d rather be a cyborg than a goddess’ and the launch of the project ’52 ways – a year long exploration into cyberfeminist artivism’.

An account of the summit will be recorded and sent to Faith Wilding as Perth’s contribution to the Cyberfeminist Discussion taking place in Berlin the following week.

To register your interest in participation or suggest a panel/discussion please email sajbrfem (at) gmail.com


Welcome them aboard! A new revised programme will be coming shortly.
