Group Spotlight – Arduino Manchester

Monday, May 19th, 2014

One of the world’s most popular open source technologies, Arduino has a special place in our hearts here at MadLab. Whether we’re teaching it, hacking it, or selling it down at Inventory, it crops up on an almost daily basis. Fittingly, one of our many community groups brings together users of the platform.

Organised by local artist James Medd, Arduino Manchester meets on the last Tuesday of the month, and is currently working on Pararchive, a project lead by the University of Leeds, which is aiming to decentralise archive materials from institutions including the BBC, Science Museum Group, and Nation Media museum, to tell the stories of community groups. Daniel Mutibwa, one of the project leaders at Leeds, has been attending Arduino Manchester’s 2014 meetups, and has written a nice summary of their April meetup:

At this Arduino Manchester group Meet-up session, we were invited to talk about the progress of the project and to hear where members were with their own research projects. As always, the session was convened by James – an artist, musician, and maker based in Manchester, and the leader and coordinator of the group. In attendance were Chris, Michelle, Roman and his friend Donna. James began the session by projecting the latest news and developments from the Arduino development platform on a screen…

We’ve finally set a date for out next meetup (blame January blues for the delay) and we’ve got some exciting news:

MadLab are currently working alongside the University of Leeds, Science Museum, BBC, and other partners on a project called Open Access Community Storytelling and the Digital Archive. At a meeting just before Christmas, we discussed ideas for new ways of accessing and exploring digital archives, and there was some excitement around the suggestion of an Arduino-powered interactive installation.

We’ll be discussing how this might work at our next meetup, and there may be an opportunity to have some work displayed at the Science Museum, so it’s definitely worth getting excited about. As always RSVP via GroupSpaces or Facebook, and we hope to see you on the 25th!
