MAKER ASSEMBLY HEADS TO EDINBURGH


08 February 2017

We're taking the grassroots maker event series to Edinburgh for a special international edition, held in partnership with the British Council.

Maker Assembly is a gathering of people interested in making. We bring them together to have a critical conversation about cultures of making: their meaning, politics, history and future. We encourage everyone to participate by combining short talks and workshop activities with contributions from the attendees. It is peer-to-peer, informal and conversational.

Following on from a successful series of Maker Assembly events, held in London, Sheffield and Manchester, Maker Assembly Edinburgh is part of a series of activities with an international focus, bringing together makers from all over the world. There will also be meet-ups of the Maker Library Network, a two-year project connecting makerspaces in the UK, Africa, Mexico, Turkey, Ukraine and others, and Hello Shenzhen, an exchange programme between the UK and China – in which Lighthouse is taking part.

Maker Assembly Edinburgh is taking place on March 3rd and will be hosted by the architecture and design studio GRAS.

Tickets: as we have limited capacity, we ask for a £10 booking deposit that will be refunded on the day. Your ticket also includes a communal lunch and refreshments throughout the day.


Maker Assembly is a community-run event, produced by Andrew Sleigh, Irini Papadimitriou, Liz Corbin, Marc Barto and Tom Lynch. It is supported by Lighthouse, the Victoria & Albert Museum, the Institute of Making, UCL and with funding from the Comino Foundation and the British Council.
