DIY Culture 2015 kicks off this week with a screening and talk titled Zines, Comics and Alternatives and taking place at London’s Rich Mix on May 24.
This year’s themes include women & technology, video art & science, DIY experiments, hacking and coding, biology and theoretical physics, and the democraticising of lab science. Chaired by Helena Wee (the co-curator of DIY Cultures), the event will bring in a handful of speakers, including London Biohackspace, a UK community biolab based around open-source principles and community access.
Other speakers include Blackgirltech discussing teaching computer coding to ethnic minority women, multi-disciplinary artist Chooc Ly Tan screening her art and science videos, and Breaking the Frame / Gail Chester on Ludditism and Gender and Technology.
See the FB event page for details. **
