Newsletter June 2018: Events, Reading & Jobs!!

From: Manon
Sent on: Sunday, June 17, 2018 11:02 AM


Hi All,

Hope you’re doing fine, enjoying this cloudy (at least in Amsterdam) Sunday to work on your project! If not, enjoy this newsletter, with events, job opportunities and some reading.
We were very happy to welcome a lot of new members at our last Lab-meeting, both experienced and new to the hands-on. Great to find a valuable addition with key knowledge for the water quality project!

This Wednesday the 5-day festival WeMakeThe.City starts in Amsterdam. A Festival full of events about making, digitazion, sustainability, communities etc. All related to the future of the city, so check the program here. In this context our Meetup on June 20th is dedicated to DIY Sensemakers sharing their experiences in “sensing the city”.

Please note that The public library is restructuring there makerspace, so we will be on level minus -1. And… due to holidays the 3th Wednesdays in July & August are cancelled, but we will have our handson Lab evenings on the first Wednesdays!

Best, Ted & Manon

How can we design cities from which all urban stakeholders can benefit?
