AktiviX started with a weekend Linux workshop for campaigners on 20th-21st September 2003 in Lancaster.
The weekend of workshops and skill sharing for activists was based around the theme of Free Software for a Free World. The weekend was aimed at all skill levels, but was particularly newbie-friendly and aimed at being empowering and encouraging.

At that it was also agreed to set up an email list.
And on this email list it was agreed to set up this wiki... read the archives for more info :-)
