Lost Weekend, Hackathon, Raspberry Jam and Bellhouse

This coming weekend (6th and 8th October) sees the launch of a new festival in Exeter called the Lost Weekend it is ‘A 3-day festival for Exeter of music, art, ideas and technology. To showcase what is new and exciting, to imagine the future and to enjoy being creative.’

We are very excited to be a part of that and have been working with Rupert Johnstone and Kaleider on the Bellhouse Project to help get that set up and ready for its installation in Exeter Library.

As part of Lost Weekend we are including the Raspberry Jam on Saturday morning as well as running a young persons’ Hackathon in Exeter Phoenix on Sunday. We are combining with FabLab Devon to provide participants with access to the Fablab’s equipment. We will have Raspberry Pis and Arduinos as well as lots of bits of pieces (some provided by Exeter Scrapstore) to use.

‘Open to all abilities, this day of making is driven by you. The aim is to produce a piece of art that once started is constantly changing. The most important thing is to meet, inspire and create. Materials will be provided and FabLab Devon will be open for access to a wide range of digital making equipment.

Enthusiasm and imagination are more important than ability and experience. There’ll be introductory sessions to get you started as well as a range of experts on hand to help with the Raspberry Pis, Arduinos, other electronic equipment and art supplies you can use.  You can register as a team or book as an individual and join a team on the day.’
