Make/Share Monthly

For people who make and do.

Make/Share is a free monthly event at The Beer Kitchen Dundee, from 7pm – 8.30pm, which brings people together to gain a behind the scenes insight into the work of people from a mix of creative, science, social and technology backgrounds.

Hear short informal talk from four people about how their project or product has evolved, changed and transformed, and how they experiment. Speakers explore the hows and the whys of what they do, but also what inspires them, what tools, techniques, expertise and collaborations they use or need. They also discuss their biggest challenges and how they overcame them.

After the talks there’s time for questions to the speakers, and for you to share your upcoming events with the group.

We’re pleased that The Beer Kitchen is our official sponsor venue for Make/Share and supports this with a free drink. Come along before the talks (from 5pm) and get a 10% off your food/drinks bill – just tell the staff you’re coming for Make/Share.

See previous speakers below.

Why do we think this event is useful?

– Processes behind turning an idea into a reality aren’t discussed enough.
– It’s a chance to present work in progress and get constructive feedback.
– It helps inspire and create opportunities for collaboration to happen.

The great thing about Make/Share is that it’s not necessarily for people who call themselves designers or artists by trade. It was great to hear from people from different professional backgrounds and hear their point of view when they’re approaching issues in their day to day process. It just goes to show that no matter who we are or what we do, creative thinking can still be embedded into our work and lifestyles.

What I like most about the event is how inclusive it shows that the creative scene in Dundee is! I really like events like this as they can really put you at the heart of things and show you how much is going on.
