The Colab Creative Technologists Meetup hosts a monthly event where people meet to share and discuss projects, prototypes, presentations, research, events and ideas that involve creativity and technology. It provides an opportunity to experiment, test, learn and develop new works and ideas, a place to give and receive constructive criticism, a collaborative environment to share skills and knowledge.
The Meetups main goal is to form and develop a community. Acting as a physical social network the Meetup provides valuable links between people, skills and knowledge, enabling more collaborative opportunities and building the collective capabilities of the community.
Each event follows a basic format including a structured presentation and discussion time based around a theme, faculty or guest speaker as well as open networking and free discussion time.
