My Actions

Aiming to build an active maker movement in the Medway towns, which already have active arts communities and some speciality technical and craft clubs, but don't appear to have a place for combined creative technical culture. They're hoping bring Science & Technology, Art & Design, and Innovation and Industry into the same place.

Makerspace

"Make, talk and play at the wind-ripping edge of digital technology." The Tech Wave tries to capture a little of the spirit of scholarship and wind-surfers for which the Atlantic fringe is renowned; from mashups to breadboards, Arduino to RDF, they consider the social and philosophical challenges of technology by engaging directly with it.

75 Harrington Street is a partnership project between the Cape Craft Design Institute (www.ccdi.org) and The Bank (www.thedesignbank.co.za). The vision is to create a curated community of design and creative professionals who are then part of a broader vision to develop and grow the creative industries in the East City. The physical space spread across four floors of the old CCDI building is a multidisciplinary co-working environment with high speed internet and a range of support systems that ideally suit companies that provide services to the design and creative industry. At the same time it is also an incubation space where ideas and business models can be tested and developed in a relaxed and interactive working space. The building also has a ground floor ideally suited to exhibitions, seminars and workshops with the unique feature being its close proximity to Harrington Street and the people walking past. Heath Nash has taken the Maker Library that was set up at Guild Design Fair in 2014 and given it a new home at 75 Harrington, with the help of founder Steven Harris. Heath is Maker Librarian at 75 Harrington runs a programme of events and workshops focusing on the reuse of waste materials in craft and design.
