I'm part of the team over at Rebel Uncut in the JQ. Every month we've been running a club for everyone who's interested in technology (coding, electronics, digital production) regardless of age or skill level.
It's been going really well so far, with lots of useful feedback that we've taken on board. The members (we call them Rebels) influence pretty much every part of what we do and it's really fantastic. On top of the drop-in club, we're running a workshop every club around something that the group wish to learn.
Next two are in November:
- Early November (7th). Workshop is Web Design Interactive as a follow up to yesterday's workshop on the basics of web design. Anyone can come with niggly problems or questions and we'll work through them together so everyone can learn from them. Tickets here.
- Late November (28th). Workshop is on electronics, starting with a complete beginners session and followed up by an interactive for those who want to be trained on specific pieces of more advanced kit. Tickets here.
Setting up a page in the next fortnight to host our safeguarding documents, risk assessment, outline of our values and ethos and code of conduct.
Hopefully we'll see you there as a maker or a mentor, and I'd really love (if you want to) if you could spread the word about it - the club is @RebelMakersClub on twitter.
