Sharing what you make and do at Make/Share!
Make/Share is a free monthly event on the second Wednesday of each month organised by Creative Dundee and hosted at The Beer Kitchen Dundee, from 7pm – 8.30pm.
This regular event brings people together to gain a behind the scenes insight into the work of people from a mix of creative, science, social and technology backgrounds.
Four speakers explore how their project or product has evolved, changed and transformed, and how they experiment. They discuss their biggest challenges and how they overcame them and even present work in progress to get your constructive feedback.
We think the processes behind turning a project or a product into a reality aren’t discussed enough, and that’s why Make/Share is so useful. After the talks there’s time for questions and the opportunity to share any news you want.
If you’d like to talk about a project you’ve been working on, just get in touch with Creative Dundee.
