Open Makerspace at the Vliegtuin
Every month we open the doors of a different workshop. On Thursday 30 March, it's the Vliegtuin's turn in Amsterdam-Noord!
Makers collective the Vliegtuin consists of a motley crew of creative makers: they craft wood, steel, reuse materials, forge, build artworks, and have an ornamental garden. These makers work at the intersection of fiction and mainstream reality: imagination, freedom and experimentation prevail.
Like many other makerspaces, the Vliegtuin will probably have to make way for the construction of flats on Distelweg in the near future.
Are you a maker and curious about this makers' collective? And do you think it is important for makers to stay in the city? Come along, have a look at the different workshops and join the discussion on the importance of (creative) makers in the city.
Be welcome from 18:00 to 20:30, there will some drinks and snacks!
Together with Pakhuis de Zwijger and the Hout- en Meubileringscollege, Waag is investigating in the Centrinno project what makers mean and can mean for the city. How do we ensure that makers in Amsterdam-North can keep their makerspaces while more and more housing is being built? How can makers' centres merge with their neighbourhoods, and can makers and residents mean something to each other?
