HLab X - Taiwan | Preps and discussions are rolling

Finally, after years of dreaming and rumours, we are actively on the ground in Taiwan and working more concretely on upcoming activities locally, residencies, workshops and a new edition of HackteriaLab somewhere in rural Taiwan, aka Formosa, an island full of nature, mountains and the sea!

Tentative schedule is around end of October / early November, this year… 2019.
We named it HLab X, kinda also use the opportunity of this years 10 year anniversary of Hackteria, and look into the future of where to head for the upcoming decade!

Notes are growing on the wiki:

We are still in a planning phase, first applications for funding are out, and waiting for reply and further opportunities. More local and international partners are now being looked for.

Visits and collaborations in Manila (PH) and Bergen (NO) are on the way, as decentral events pre & post HLab X - Taiwan.

Please respond here if you are interested to join the team!
We have started more regular online calls and a whole lot of notes on a gdrive

Hello! my name is Aletheia Shin. I am part of the artist collective called Rice Brewing sisters club
Rice Brewing Sisters Club is a collective of sisters who love to host platforms for loud chatters and self-organized gatherings. RBSC uses the form of a collective as a way to seek networks within and beyond the art world and build sustainable relationships with local communities. RBSC also experiments with artistic research, participation, and collaboration as ways to give birth to new ideas, shared knowledge, stories, and conversations.
2019 members:

We are planning to be in Taiwan in August and read somewhere you might be in town for a residency at that time.
It will be really great to meet you when you are there.
Please let us know!


Hello Hackterian Networkers,

Warm tropical greetings for all Stateless Hackterian Networkers.
Some Lifepatchers will also be in Taiwan in this September - October to work together wit OCAC. And for me the rhyme of "
HLabX-Taiwan " sounds tempting the curiosity: what is that? :grin::sunglasses:

I wish can support any collaboration anywhere anytime for this 10 years anniversary.

Best regards,
