Free and open source software has revolutionary potential. As a group of 9 programmers and media producers, we went to learn from organizers in Cuba's tech community. Now we’re collaborating with them to co-host CubaCamp, a three days of open workshops before Cubaconf 2017 in early November.

THIS IS A BENEFIT FOR TECH SOLIDARITY WITH CUBA
All money goes towards our Cuban allies hosting CubaCamp with programmers and organizers from around the world. We are grateful that this event is also nourished by OneTable, an organization that supports Shabbos gatherings. They provided a generous grant that covers our rental costs at B4BELAB, the talks and musical guests, and the food and drink. Learn more and host your own Shabbos dinner at onetable.org.
EVERYONE IS WELCOME TO JOIN!

THE LAND AND THE SPACE:
This event focuses on international solidarity with Cuba’s open source community. We acknowledge that this event takes place on occupied land, the traditional territory of the Ohlone.
B4BEL4B Gallery is up one flight of stairs. If you’d like assistance, get in touch and we’ll figure out a solution. Restrooms are gender-neutral.
Creating an inclusive and appropriate space is important to us. Any sort of verbal/ emotional/ sexual aggression will not be tolerated. If you feel threatened in any way, please speak with the venue staff or event organizers. Please respect the space and each other!
B4BEL4B is an artist-run gallery for visual and new media art with an emphasis on diversity, community and network culture. Their arts program prioritizes women, queer, and critically underrepresented groups in technology and media art spaces. We strive to support radically-inclusive ideologies, critical dialogue, and seek to engage divergent communities in order to encourage new conversations and ideas.
