Join us in our project week QUWOCHE!
We shov­elled our­selves free from almost any oth­er oblig­a­tions to use this intense work­ing week as a col­lec­tive. Our goal is free artis­tic pro­duc­tion, fol­low­ing sparks of ideas, with a cer­tain sense of duty in this enclosed time frame.
 
We cel­e­brate our dai­ly work with a nice Aper­i­tif, where you can vis­it us any day from 5pm.
Please sign up for the Sat­ur­day Work­shop on Zine Gen­er­a­tion in python — work­shop will start at 2pm – if you want to par­tic­i­pate, reg­is­ter here: https://cloud.servus.at/apps/forms/ckJfQj4X3dNZRWYT (info below!) 
On Sun­day 1st of May, LABOUR DAY, we cel­e­brate our accom­plish­ments and invite you to join for a chilled elec­tro brunch with drinks and snacks!
 
Any­thing that goes on will be post­ed — fol­low us online @qujochoe for all the live infos!

Sat­ur­day 30th April 2022, 2–5pm.
Work­shop: Zine Generator
with Mara Karagianni
 

In this work­shop we will fol­low through some python code for cre­at­ing PDF pam­phlets, lay­outs  and zines. We will look into the PDF libraries FPDF and Borb and work with an exten­sion of the FPDF mod­ule to cre­ate page lay­outs, sig­na­tures, cov­ers and colophons.

This will be a hands-on work­shop, where par­tic­i­pants will be intro­duced to python func­tions and class­es for mak­ing cus­tom scripts to gen­er­ate PDF pub­li­ca­tions by feed­ing text and image files to their script. We will start with an overview of spe­cif­ic python libraries that work with PDF for­mat, and we will con­tin­ue with the zine gen­er­a­tor code acces­si­ble here. While pri­or knowl­edge to python is not required, par­tic­i­pants shall be com­fort­able with using the terminal.

Mara is an artist, devel­op­er, tech zinester and python instruc­tor, who reg­u­lar­ly muse about cul­ture and foss on mastodon (systerserver.town/@mara) and pub­lish their zines at psaroskalazines.gr. Togeth­er with oth­er queer peers, they run the fem­i­nist servers anar­chaserv­er & systerserver.
