DIY Feminist Action!(Red Chidgey,Elke Zobl, Nina Nijsten, Anna Voswinckel)
Summary: Since the beginning of 2008, Elke Zobl (Austria) and Red Chidgey (UK) have been working on a book anthology documenting the zines, art and activism of DIY and queer feminists internationally. With a visual introduction to DIY Feminism by Nina Nijsten (Belgium), this presentation will cover some of the working practices involved with our cross-border collaborations, including a zine wiki, on-line book tools, and the interactive site Grassroots Feminism: Transnational archives, resources and communities (www.grassrootsfeminism.net), programmed with the open-source Social Software (Drupal). The presentation will be followed by an open discussion to share experiences and suggestions!
