Next Thursday on February 17th, Open Design City and betahaus will present the first installment of a new creative event at the betahaus Café:
We call it Baustelbar.
Baustelbar is a night of short presentations, show and tell workshops and partying. We will start on a monthly schedule, but hope to increase it to a bi-monthly and even weekly night in the future.
You can expect this to happen:
19 h: Come in, have a beer, interact at the bazaar
20 h: Introduction of all projects, four short presentations (10 mins each)
21 h: More beer, more interaction, workshops
22 h: Everyone starts to dance
We invite you to interact on all levels:
The presentation slots will be filled at the beginning of the event, barcamp-style. Talk about your project, either finished, in progress or planned or enlighten us about your work related to ODC's areas of interest, such as tinkering/hacking, creativity, upcycling, crafts and arts, open design etc.
The bazaar will be your show and tell area with lots of tables. Show your project, invite spectators to become active or build something during the night. Tables will be given to anyone interested. (Make sure you arrive at 18 h for setup.)
Of course, you can be both a speaker and have a bazaar table at Baustelbar, so you can talk about the ideas and specifics of your projects in front of the audience first and then invite people to have a closer look.
If you are shy, it's okay to just be a spectator. There will always be a next time for your to present. :)
If you already know that you want to talk and/or show your project, please let us now so we can plan ahead: Send Philip an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you can't make it on the 17th but would love to do something the next time, let us know as well.
