Join CoraxConf 28-30 July 2017

#coraxconf

Dear editors, premium members and others!

Last year’s inaugural Coraxconf was a great success! 50 people participated even though we opted for an informal gathering – and those of you who stayed a week (or more) made the before and after meetups a perfect workation.

During the conference we decided to cap the number of attendees at Dunbar in order to ensure familiarity. The question is – how fast will the tickets go?

We also did our homework and looked at your feedback, so expect to see changes in the lineup with regards to topics. We will update this site with topics and speakers continually. Hope to see you during the last weekend of July for the conference, as well as the week leading up to it.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions!

About Corax

Startpage for news, curated by libertarians

Corax is a crowdsourced news aggregator. It is the English language version of bubb.la, a highly successful service available since June 2014 in Sweden.

We provide an alternative startpage for news, free from statist, left-wing and authoritarian bias. We link to all kinds of media, including mainstream news outlets, alternative media, blogs, social media postings, press releases and anything else we find relevant.

A team of volunteer editors post links, write headlines and vote to decide what gets published. We are always looking for new editors to join our international editorial team. Contact us if this sounds interesting to you! info@cor.ax

The annual conference is intended to be a place for Corax readers, editors and libertarians all over the world to connect. It takes place during the last weekend of July each year.

Topics and activities

ALTERNATIVE INSTITUTIONS

We need to practice what we preach in market contexts whether we focus on the blockchain or general disruptive IT, (un)schooling and education or whether we’re actors in the war of narratives in alternative media. We also need to make it profitable and enjoy working hard. Thus a large portion of the conference will be dedicated to discussions and hands-on work with existing and/or new projects.

PRINCIPLES AND TRADITION

While we need to work effectively and proactively build alternative institutions, we also need to read dead white men’s classical works and understand the cultural and intellectual contexts which bred ideas of spontaneous order and private property. We will listen to and discuss several types of libertarian ideas as well as examining the limitations of libertarianism and what is necessary to complement it.

Listen to great speakers

Meet fellow libertarian activists and listen to their experiences from different projects.

Interact|ivism

Attend workshops and learn unconventional and exceptionally smart ways for activists to work.

Mo work mo play

Enjoy the Mediterranean sun, explore the Maltese islands, and party like a libertarian.

Accommodation

Feel free to contact other attendees if you are interested in sharing accommodation.

Malta is a small island, and the eight most densely populated country in the world, so nothing is ever far away. However, we recommend keeping to Sliema or surrounding areas such as St Julians and Gzira which are closest. Msida, San Gwann, Ta Xbiex, Swieqi and Pembroke are also viable but remember that temperatures are high during the summer so unless you want to take a cab or bus it’s better to stay close by. The ferry from Valletta to Sliema is very quick so look there as well.

AirBnB or shortlets are recommended and booking groupwise is a good idea since most rentals are equipped with lots of extra beds (here’s a search for two people nearby).

There are a few hotels and hostels in the immediate area. Check tripadvisor for your desired pricing and check the reviews. Search the map so you know where you end up!
