Creative Dundee

Make/Share – May Line-Up


We’re delighted to announce that The Beer Kitchen is hosting this month’s Make/Share and supporting the event with complementary ½ pints.

This event is part of this year’s Ignite Dundee Programme. Every May, the city buzzes with creative energy and this month-long cultural festival celebrates just that.

Join us on Wednesday 11th May at The Beer Kitchen Dundee, 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.

Watch a short film and see speakers from previous nights here.

You don’t need to sign up, just come along! Add this event to your Google calendar!

Speakers this time include:
