DESCRIPTION

Cairo Hackerspace is an opensource community lab/workspace/resource center where engineers, designers, scientists, artists, and everyone else can collaborate and share ideas and tools. From April 8th to the 18th, this spirit of copyleft construction will infiltrate the Townhouse in the form of a pop-up hackerspace in the First Floor Gallery. Throughout this week and a half, the hackers will lead workshops geared towards visual and sound artists, including sessions on making Arduino programming, hacking designed objects and other DIY-driven topics. Focused on group problem solving, the workshops also present the opportunity for artists to come and develop creative solutions to technological-related issues they may be having with current projects.
