The Cosmikats is a group of self-taught digital lovers.

With several support from communities*, and freeist and cultural associations, the 2 co-founders of the association have been, from the very beginning, playing the role of access facilitators to diverse tools, equipment, content, and spaces, for users and audience from different horizons, be they amateurs or professionals, beginners or experts, from any gender and age. In only 5 years, the association has gradually managed to reach a wider network of actors, through “small” and “big” projects.

It all started with the observation that there are men and women all over the world who are machine whisperers and it looks like they’re having a good time. Whether they’re being called developers, hackers, makers, engineers... They seem to have even more fun when they contribute to defending major principles such as open-source, sharing, net neutrality, the right to privacy, the preservation of the public domain...

There is no reason to hang up because they are better machine whisperers than others. There is no age to start having fun. There is no reason not to hop on a moving train, even when it is moving at high digital speed. There is no age for learning. There is no age for trying to understand and ask for help.

The Cosmikats claims to be an association of noobs, by noobs, for noobs**.

We welcome anyone who knows how to do so to come and teach us. And everyone who doesn’t know to come and not knowing how to do so with us. By its fun name, the association is gradually claiming an uninhibited approach to the processes of technological, creative and associative appropriation.

In contact with many partners, the members and volunteers of the association have learned through various means :
- to contribute to free projects and/or focus on digital citizenship issues,
- to carry and intertwine multimedia and transmedia views and technologies,
- to develop DIY and creative arts,
- to cultivate new relationships with each other.
