We have a dream.
That every night and day something cool is happening at Open Design City (it's pretty cool already, but we want moar). Whether a presentation that challenges your thinking, a workshop that empowers your creativity, or a class which expands your skills, or anything else you desire (we are as ever Open).
But this shouldn't be our dream alone. This is your space to shape and create. We want to give you the opportunities to host your events within the ODC.
So far this has been happening ad hoc, and we have had great successes including:
3d face scanning workshop: By Friedrich Kirschner
Crafting Circuits: By Philip Steffan and Julia Schreiber
Upcycling Workshop: By Trial and Error Kulturlabor
Screen Printing Class: By Tracy Rolling, and Mark Splatter
Presentations (most notably Otto von Busch): Arranged by Christophe Valliant
The Enable Berlin Sessions: By Pedro Pineda
Cook your own lampshades: By Jay Cousins, Christopher Doering and Mendel Heit
Design Thinking: By Invented Here
Mozilla Drumbeat: By Michelle Thorne
DMY Maker Lab: The daddy of Open Design City
Now we want to scale it up. Have more community events, for learning, for fun and even for profit (for you and for us).
At this event we'll give you some tips on making your own events happen at Open Design City as well as connecting you to the broader Berlin network. We also have an announcement on something as big, epic and exciting as the DMY Maker Lab (if not even bigger).
So come along on Monday 4th October from 7pm and help shape Open Design City's community calendar. We aim to keep it quick so we can enjoy the social side.
Afterward's you may also want to hang out with the Bausteln crowd.
