Villages at OHM 2013

If you've never been to an event like Electromagnetic Field, the concept of villages might be new to you. Villages are camps within EMF run by attendees. They're organised around a theme, often a location or a topic (e.g. lock-picking). Many villages organise their own workshops or talks for other volunteers to attend. And of course, share all the fun together!

By organising villages ahead of time we, can help provide better equipment (e.g. large tents to use), as well as allocating a location. You can bring a large tent to use as a gathering place, somewhere to run workshops, or somewhere to house your giant robot. We can provide power and a wired internet connection to your village.

If you have any questions about villages drop an email to, or drop into our IRC channel.
