Group Spotlight – Arduino Manchester

Monday, May 19th, 2014

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…

Title: Arduino Manchester
Location: Terrace (see directions below)
Description: A meetup based in Manchester for all those interested in the Arduino platform: creatives, designers, programmers, engineers, artists, makers, hackers and inventors.

Date: 30-09-2014
From 19:00 to 20:30

 

 

 

Time to touch base on Pararchive and catchup on a couple of months of Arduino news! After a cancelled meetup in July and a late announcement last month, we’re a little out of sorts with our usual meetup format.

Bring along projects and news and we’ll get back to normal!
RSVP for free on Facebook (or just turn up!)

 

Directions to the meeting room at Terrace:

Terrace is the bar next to MadLab. It’s really easy to find. Stand facing the MadLab entrance and shuffle to your right until you get to their black double doors. Go through these, and immediately right again, through a door and up the stairs. Voila!

We’re back! Apologies to everyone who wanted to attend last month, I was not the healthiest person to be around. We’ll be squeezed in amongst MadLab’s refurb, so you’ll get a glimpse of what they’re up to, plus a look at everything we didn’t go through last month!
