The goddess Artemis of the Ancient Greek mythology is a virgin and a hunter, defender of girls and women.
She is goddess of remote places, wilderness, wasteland and forgotten alleys. She was venerated especially as the protector of the margins of the society, of passages, transitions and young mothers.
Social Center X
Social Center X is a small non-profit association whose aim is to develope peer support tools and practices. Although the practical work is focused on the possibilities created by new technologies, fundamentally it is all about updating the old principles of cooperation.
We X-activists believe that with rational allocation of burdens, we can make everyday life a little easier and safer. Each of us needs the help of others from time to time and that helping hand might just be just me.
Social Center X’s chairperson is writer and politician Anna Kontula.
