Make/Share April Line-Up
Share what you do and profile your work at Make/Share!
Make/Share brings people together to gain a behind the scenes insight into the work of people from a mix of creative, science and technology backgrounds.
Join us on Wednesday 13th April at Dundee MakerSpace in the Vision Building, from 7pm – 8.30pm, to hear short talks by people about the processes behind turning their project or product into a reality. Speakers explore how their project or product has evolved, progressed, changed and transformed, how they experiment, what their biggest challenges have been and how they overcame them.
Short talks include the opportunity to show and demo your work. Just bring them along on the night – or share your upcoming events with the group, we’ll make sure to tweet about them. After the talks we have a short opportunity for any questions and discussion.
You don’t need to sign up, just come along!
