Meetups are independent community gatherings organized by Techfestival co-creators. Open to curious minds of all ages and backgrounds. Make sure to RSVP to secure your spot!
Have you ever wondered who is making the future? How to design it? What will be the next innovation?
The heart of innovation is not technology, but people who excel at inspiring experimentation and don’t see the boundaries set in our heads by time and conventions.
The makers: independent inventors, designers and tinkerers. Is it yet a serious economic, technological force? Will it catalyze a resurgence of smaller-scale, local manufacturing? How to start making by yourself?
We will be debating all the above and tell you about our endeavors, learning, personal benefits and design approach to making the future.
There will also be a chance to get your hands dirty – we will be conducting a workshop on electronics for all participants.
