am with jerome -- something around DTN instead of concurrent makes more sense.
Actually Have two happenings to invite for, one before and one after DTN.
I am helping organizing with Xenia and several locals a larger one-week
event in Kyiv, Ukraine ... April 23th-April 30th 2019, around Delta Chat
and neighboring decentralized communities, with UX testing, an
unconference and a street game played out in Podil ... anybody who
likes Squatconf-like events will feel at home ... there is also talk
about temporarily using an interesting industrial area with side
buildings near the river and support the local art scene, help evolve
a bit of a hacker scene (there is hardly any!) ...
if you are interested please mail me, or ksenia at radicalcinema org,
we have an evolving cryptpad -- some folks here already know of it.
And for some superficial glimpses for when we first visited Kyiv
in October/November 2018: https://delta.chat/en/2018-11-17-deltaxi
Then, ten days after DTN there is GPN, May 30th-June 2nd, the 2K people
"mini-CCC" event, in Karlsruhe, near the french border. They have a
large outside area and lots of good cooking from the hackersspace ... no
tickets, no security guards, no entry fee. In the ten days between DTN
and GPN i can offer offer nice hangouts and accomodations in Freiburg --
there are likely going to be fun happenings with decentralization and
squatconfy folks ... maybe even a larger event but that takes till
later in march to figure out, various conversations ongoing.
Both the Kyiv and Freiburg happenings will offer space for money-free
accomodation, food and participation. For the Freiburg after-DTN time
there also is the idea to camp out in the forest for a few nights and
walk, talk and hack off-the-grid ... maybe visiting the Heideggerian
waterfalls nearby, in Todtnauberg ;)
have a good weekend everyone, and see you all around this spring! ;)
