Join us for Maker Monday on Monday 27th April, our fortnightly slice of inspiration from the creative and tech worlds.

We’ve been monitoring the response to the clear concerns over COVID-19 and have decided to make our event online with a live stream presentation and live Q&A with our speakers.

We care about your safety, and the safety of the broader community, and feel it is more important than ever to find new ways to connect and celebrate tech, creativity, conversation and communities.

As always, we will keep the inspiration flowing with some shorter, impactful talks, lots of sharing, content and space for discussion.

If you want to bring your own food and beer along as well, please do.
