Our aim is for Assembly to catalyse a critical and reflective conversation about making. We would like to hear a greater diversity of views, and develop a richer understanding of maker culture, the opportunities and challenges we face, and the role of making within a wider social, political, historical and environmental context.
We would like this conversation to extend beyond the day itself, and outside the room. Please join us on Twitter, continue the conversation at makerspaces and meetups, and share your ideas, reflections or links with us. You can email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
