TOULOUSE HACKER SPACE FACTORY 2016 - Call for Participation

May 19th-22nd 2016, Mixart`Myrys (Toulouse, France)

This is the THSF 2016 call for participation to all hackers, performers, makers, social thinkers, artists, ...

Deadline for submission is April 10th 2016.


The TOULOUSE HACKER SPACE FACTORY is an event based on knowledge sharing, meetings around artistic propositions, conferences and workshops. This hybrid formulation aims at creating a critical and experimental space, and stimulates reflexion and research in various domains (artistic, technological, sociological, philosophic, etc).

The event is focused on free usage and reappropriation of technology, and what it implies on the transformation of our societies. It's open to all, beginners, experts and curious people.


2K16 will be the 7th edition of this event taking place at [MixArt Myrys] (, in Toulouse, South of France.

A number of essential topics (monitoring military law in France , Snowden disclosure, free software, open data ...) were broached in an unsatisfaying way lately. A disappointment feeling has been largely shared this summer in the hacker community and even more widely since the end of year 2015. So, what's next? What can we do now?

Question the notion of temporality and long time of ideas to think action appears efficient to us, when our will is that ideas continue to act and survive despite the context hazards, beyond individuals, groups and events.

We are going to overhaul the notion of temporality whether:

  • Individual and biologic (psychologic, everyday routine, health),
  • Politics (Greek letter's deadline, Agora 500 BC)
  • Media (Available brain time for advertisments),
  • War (information speed, real time UAV),
  • Finance (High Frequency Trading),
  • Artistic (Real time, ephemeral event),
  • IT (0 day),
  • Physics (t observable)
  • Human (Is it Beer o'clock yet ?)


At our disposal:

  • a 4000m2 warehouse,
  • spaces for workshops,
  • a conference room,
  • a concert hall,
  • a 250m2 room dedicated to a hacker residency during the event,
  • video and audio stream,
  • places for many installations (artistic, hacking project, etc),
  • two or more bars,
  • food at a good price,
  • a huge pipe to internetz (8Gb / s),
  • a parking (free)

The place will be opened 24/24 during the 4 days of the event for every participant(s).
