When: Various


What: Calling all geeks, artists, designers, illustrators, hackers, innovators and idle dreamers; the Manchester Digital Laboratory is here for you!

A 1000 sq. ft. former shop in the Northern Quarter – open when there’s an event happening.

It’s a space you can get together with like-minded individuals and work on your urban gardening, crochet, hacking, programming, media arts, filmmaking, animating project without worrying that you’re in a library, coffee shop, pub or other unsuitable venue.

They know hackers and craftspeople need work space and may need to get down and dirty – they also know sometimes you need a quiet area to present and show works to your peers. Thye support both activities. Hoping to create a rich mix of individuals who’ll get out of the usual zones, the knitter talking to the software architect, the cupcake maker scheming with the laser etching builder. We know some good will come of this.
