Events have aligned, along with the serendipitous occurrence of a Maker infrastructure in the Moritzplatz area.
Moritzplatz is now Makerplatz, a maker hub.
Now the serendipity grows, Planet Modulor will make an official opening party, the same weekend as the People in Beta festival. Both want to do something involving makers.
So MakerLab Makerplatz will occur concurrently in Betahaus, Open Design City, Planet Modulor, Etsy Labs, and hopefully also Prinzessinengarten and other spaces should they with to participate.
Our aims are:
To unite, highlight, and catalyse the Berlin Maker Community with a festival of making, collaboration and co-production.
Establish long term collaborations and benefits for both participants and supporting infrastructures.
To maximise the benefits and increase the sustainability (environmental, emotional and financial) of the Makerplatz ecosystem.
Establish Makerplatz as a Maker Hub, with connections to other hubs within Berlin and beyond.
If you would like to be involved then please come to our planning party at Planet Modulor on Friday 9th September @ 20:00 – please confirm attendance. If you can’t make it please send me an email stating what you could bring to the festival (skills, workshops, tools, materials, experience) and what your objectives of participation would be (ie. how you will benefit, just for fun is also valid).
