A Traversal Network of Feminist Servers (ATNOFS) is a collaborative project formed around intersectional, feminist, ecological servers whose communities travelled between each other in 2022 to share and extend their knowledges through live gatherings. ATNOFS argues that such platforms and tools are necessary to navigate our communications and cultural growth beyond the current media oligopolies, and democratise cultural and political expression outside obscure, bureaucratic algorithms and advertising monetisation.
The project responded to the need for continuity, interrelation and support for self-hosted and self-organised computational infrastructures in The Netherlands (Varia, LURK), Romania (hypha), Austria (esc mkl), Greece (Feminist Hack Meetings) and Belgium (Constant).

Wendy Van Wynsberghe is a DIY and digital artist, sound & field recorder, in love with nature and its wildlife, fascinated by the protocol in all its forms, including inter-human and non-human relations, script coder, physical computing aficionado, net neutrality custodian, dabbling in embroidery, crochet & knitting (with or without eTextiles). Since 2004 she was involved in the project Ellentriek that organized a series of open hardware workshops where artists worked together on their projects, mostly thematic. From 2015 to 2016 she organised Objects in common, a series of events that explored "other ways of doing" such as design for functional diversity, situated digital manufacturing in for example African cities. She works with electronics, textile, sounds, open hardware, using only free software, all work under a free art license.
