Artefact cafe

Tags: education research workshop

“If only I had a place to go and make stuff” – for many this idea is a dream but with the creation of Hackerspaces, Maker spaces and shared tinkering workshops the opportunity to fulfil a basic human need can be satisfied. The development of these spaces is due in part to the openness of modern communication & fabrication technology and the people who use them. The Artefact Café project is investigating the future of open access maker spaces; how they will look, how they will function, what tools and facilities would be available and what activities people might do.

During the Mini Maker Faire we have activities that will start to answer these questions, please come along, we want to hear what you think & what type of space you want.
