The Brussels ICT-trainingcenter for women Interface3 organised the third Digitales-days event this week. For three days workshops and forums were organised where (mostly) female trainees, ICT-professionals, cyberartistsen media(h)ac(k)tivists from Belgium {1} {2}, the Netherlands {1} {2}, Germany, France {1} {2}, Spain, Italy {1} {2} {3}, the US and Canada could meet eachother. This unique initiative didn't just give women in the ICT training program a chance to meet with female artists and activists. It was also a nice occasion for female cyberactivists to get in touch with each other and exchange experiences. Check out the reports about the whole event on Indymedia Belgium.

In London, San Fransisco and Amsterdam the genderchangers are offering skillsharing workshops and support to female activists, and the linuxchicks are providing a supportive forum for women in the geek dominated world of linux, to encourage more women to use free software.
Other groups working in Britain are Women Connect, APC Women's Networking Support Centre and APC Women and ICTs News.

In Indymedia the IMC Women email list provides support and encouragement.
Activists from Candida TV shared skills in video editing at Digitales 2004, so hopefully many more video clips will be finding their way to the Indymedia European NewsReal in future.
