Every week, people in the community are throwing events all over the world to celebrate Maker Party. We’ve been showcasing many of those events and the cool things people are making on this blog, but there’s still more to share!
Here’s what happened this past week:
Abidjan, Ivory Coast
The second edition of Popathon Creative Jam in London took place on the weekend. This creative hack jam gave attendees a hands-on experience creating interactive stories that are truly part of the web. Individuals learned how to hack movies with open source tools and an attendee created this new video remix.
At the Hive Pittsburgh Maker Party with Sprout Fund hundreds celebrated the ending of summer by enjoying live music, food and all kinds of hands-on maker activities and learning stations in one of the coolest lab spaces in Pittsburgh.
