The community-run conference Maker Assembly is coming to Belfast on Wednesday 16th March. This edition is organised by the great people at Farset Labs.

This series of events brings together makers, practitioners and academics for a critical discussion about maker cultures. Designed as a shift from traditional maker events too often focused on showcasing new technologies, this conference aims to challenge misconceptions and offer a reflective debate about the state of making.

Having co-created (full team of organisers here) the first event in London at the V&A with the support of the Comino Foundation and the Crafts Council, I am excited to see other cities running their own edition. To get an overview of what to expect at the conference, watch the highlights from the London event below.

The Farset Labs team has put together an ambitious programme of talks, debates and activities for their event. Here are some of the questions to be explored at the conference: How local making initiatives are contributing to the peace-building project, what new making practices lie ahead and how maker networks are nurtured and sustained.

Here is the list of speakers and workshop leaders:

Maker Assembly NI is supported by Creativity Month, DCALNI and BBC Northern Ireland. You can follow the latest news about the Belfast event on @MakerAssemblyNI.
