Hacklab benefit and learn-to-build-a-PC workshop Saturday!

asa | 13.04.2004 17:50 | Free Spaces | Technology | London

The next benefit to raise funds for the Freedom Media Hacklab is happening at 8pm this Saturday at the ex-Grand Banks social centre. There will be food, a cafe, a juice bar, DJs and even a live acoustic set. Suggested donation at door: £2 waged, £1 unwaged. This time around we will be having a PC building workshop at 6pm, before the main event. If you've ever wanted to learn how to build your own PC from scratch (either from new parts, saving yourself money or from reused parts, saving even more money!) then this is the place to learn. No experience required! You can even bring your own parts and we will help you to get your PC working.

You can download a flyer for this event. Please photocopy and give out as many as you can:

Social centre address: Grand Banks, 156-158 Fortess Road, Tufnell Park, NW5 - just opposite Tufnell Park tube. Bus: 4, 134 or 210.

About the Media Hacklab

A new Media Hacklab is getting started in the east end of London. Based at the Freedom Press bookshop and social centre, it will be an open access computer lab with internet access. Going beyond the preponderance of internet cafes, a Hacklab is a political space used for alternative media, the use and development of free software and other emancipatory technologies, skill sharing and collective learning, community projects and anything else we can organise. The projects that happen there will depend on the commitment of those involved. Currently our main focus is raising enough money for a year's worth of broadband connection.
