Digitales Archives (archive, 2001 - 2006)


Digitales meetings in Brussels were a project by the Belgian network ADA - Femmes et IT/Vrouwen en IT to "stimulate women’s action in contemporary society and bring awareness of the concept of gender to the debates on new technologies" through workshops, conferences, symposia, etc. Between 2001 and 2006 four Digitales meetings took place. The Digitales Archives now provide access to all material (articles, interviews, videos etc.) produced during these four Digitales meetings; emphasis on new technology, cyberfeminism, women and IT, education/training etc.

From 2001 to 2006 Digitales was an event that brought together universities, art and new media, the industry, activists and feminists with and in adult education centres and vocational training centres. Digitales built on the existing training programmes, adding a new layer of meaning, knowledge and skills, experiences, meetings and discussions to the programme. Digitales were meeting days with a strong focus on sharing knowledge, work, skills, experiences, dreams and concerns. It was a simple, but at the same time complex observation that triggered the organisation of these days: we live in the here and now, and we use new technologies for work, creation, distribution and research, but also to play, to communicate and to learn.
