Artists (of all descriptions) please post links to where people can buy your stuff in a reply!

Feminist Hack Meetings #3
At Varia + online
#Spideralex will introduce us to Feminist #Futurotopixs. This workshop will enable participants to dream, invent and desire together feminist #technologies. They will invent narratives, speculative fiction and radical imaginaries that work as alternatives to existing oppressive or dystopian models. The workshop is oriented at co-designing stories and creating new worlds as processes to imagine and #dream together about feminist desired futures.
