Makers assemble in Manchester

Techmog is a liquid network of engineers, programmers, designers and entrepreneurs in and around London who report on the industry we work in, from an insider's view. We're always looking for Londoners with something interesting to say. Send an email to info@techmog.com if you would like to contribute to the website.

Check out: Arduino Day 2015

Maker Assembly brings people together to have critical conversations about cultures of making – their meanings, politics, histories and futures. We encourage everyone to participate by combining short talks with contributions from the attendees. The event is peer-to-peer, informal and conversational.

Previous editions have taken place in London, Belfast, Sheffield and coming up next is Maker Assembly Manchester, which will take place Saturday, 12th November at MadLab, in conjunction with the Crafts Council’s Make:Shift innovation conference.

Designed as a shift from traditional maker events too often focused on showcasing new technologies, this gathering aims to challenge misconceptions and offer a reflective debate about the state of making.

Our team has put together an ambitious programme of talks, debates and activities for this event. Here are some of the questions to be explored on the day:

  • International maker cultures and what the UK can learn from them
  • The new relationship between making and manufacturing in the UK
  • Making and humanitarian relief, discussing the role making can play within responses to humanitarian challenges.

We have some great speakers joining us, including Justyna Swat (POC 21, France), Craig Dunlop ( Workshop, South Africa), Ian Lesnet (Dangerous Prototypes, China), Paul Sohi (Autodesk).

If you would like to attend the event please book your ticket here. To get an idea of what to expect at the conference, watch the highlights from the London event below.


Maker Assembly is supported by the Comino Foundation.
