Here’s a sneak peek at our new HQ, the Machines Room a maker space at Lime Wharf, in Bethnal Green, London. Maker spaces are places with 3D printers, software, electronics, hardware supplies and tools where anyone can come to learn, share skills and create.
Our residency is part of a British Council project that connects designers and makers around the world through a program of travel exchanges, exhibitions and events via its network of Maker Libraries. Not sure what a Maker Library is? It’s a maker space with a library and gallery. Currently there are maker libraries in the UK, South Africa, Germany, Mexico and Turkey - and the network is growing.
Our home isn't all we've changed, we have a new name to go with our new home: Disrupt Disability. Well, its not entirely new if you've been paying attention you'll see we've swapped our slogan for our name and dropped the hashtag!
Drop by and say hi! Our next event will be a makeathon at the Machines Room on Saturday 16 July 2016.
