Details

Announcing the new regular gathering for the space-curious citizen (yes, you!) - SPACE TOWN HALL (http://www.spacetownhall.com)!
The launch of our the first ever Space Town Hall will be right in the middle of London at Impact Hub Westminster on the 6th October, 2014. You are invited.

What is the Space Town Hall?

Space Town Hall would provide a place for every space-curious citizen (yes, you!) to get together and form projects, share knowledge or to talk space, over pizza and beer. If you have a project idea, bring it along. If you are looking to join a project, come along. If you just wanted to find out what's going on in space, come along. If not, just bring your curiosity and come along anyways. At Citizen Inventor we believe in curiosity and diversity. It'll be exciting!

Space exploration is about curiosity, a open mind to be led by curiosity and a willing pair of hands is all you need to get started, regardless of background - if that's you, come along!

What will happen at Space Town Hall?

Probably covered by the above points. On the Launch, we'll announce a couple of new initiatives on open space projects which you are encouraged to join. On top of that, socializing on all thing space over pizza and beer. We will be in a cafe setting, so plenty of table if you have something to show and you want to bring them along (please do!). Forward going post launch, we'd encourage you to bring all things space along - demo, prototypes, poems, music, sculpture, film...
