Folks

I've been talking with Graham from O'Reilly. James (who spearheaded
our EMF effort) and I will be co-ordinating a joint UK Hackerspaces
effort/area at the UK Maker Faire.

We'll be getting in touch shortly with all Hackerspaces about that.

I'm part of Newcastle Makerspace, and we've been talking to the
organisers at the Centre for Life, who are running the Faire. She was
wondering (casually) if the UK Hackspaces would like to get together
and have a collective hackspace area rather than a few spread around.
Is this something we'd be interested in?

Please note, i've got nothing to do with Maker Faire, Centre for Life
or anyone else involved in the formal organisation of the event. I'm
just nearby and know a few of the people involved.

Cheers

Hello Hackerspace Folks 

As you probably know there will be a UK Maker Faire in Newcastle on 27th & 28th April 2013 after a few conversations with the organisers O'Reilly it's been suggested that Hackerspaces could have a slightly more coordinated effort or presence at the UK Maker Faire. To this end O'Reilly are providing a Hackerspaces area which is to include Mitch Altmans' soldering tables. 

It's proposed that there will be a joint Hackerspaces table/area for UK and Irish Hackerspaces at the Faire. This is likely to consist of information about the UK & Irish Hackerspaces, where more information can be found or how to go about setting up a Hackerspace. It's likely to include lots of photos & videos about Hackerspaces a mailing list form for more information (probably propagated back to their local hackspace) and a really big interactive map with existing hackerspaces marked with QR codes and information about them. 

The combined effort isn't intended to replace anything you are already planning for the Faire. If you or your Hackerspace want to have your own exhibit or table at the Faire you still need to complete the Call to Makers on the UK Maker Faire webpage. 

If you would like to help with the combined Hackerspaces table/area then please do complete this form

thank you
