This just in from Chris at Make Hack Void:
As some of you already know, Make Hack Void (The Canberra Hackerspace) has been given October as the formal date Bulldozers will come knocking. The Downer Business park, where MHV resides, will be redeveloped into affordable units/housing plus a commercial district.
A possible site option in Hughes has fallen through so we are now back looking for something suitable.
MHV is a community workshop that runs regular workshops like ‘Arduino programming’ and ‘Build your own Quadcopter’ and as a place where members can use the tools/facilities. Other cool things that have come from MHV are a Pedal Powered Cinema, the MHVBoard (An arduino clone), Canberra UAV, a Maker Uncoference, a place for international and interstate visitors to explore and a place where props are built for local theatre/movies, interstate theatre and international needs.
Do you know of a space? Is there an empty building in your vicinity? Can our hackerspace crash on your couch for a while?
