This years get2gether isn’t just about talking – it’s also about doing, creating and participating! In the lobby of the Main Library you can come visit the People’s Lab – here you will have the chance to create something yourself!
While you are working with your hands we will seize the opportunity and tell you about our experiences with creating open innovative environments in the public library. With inspiration from makerculture, makerspaces and hackerspaces we are trying to get a grip on how libraries can contribute to this emerging way of creating and connecting.
Our work is based on the perception that libraries can and should play an important role in promoting citizens’ desire and ability to innovate. We do this work in collaboration with the local hackerspace Open Space Aarhus – which will also be present in the People’s Lab this evening. We also have several other amazing partners in the project that you can read more about at www.folkelab.dk/english.
