Please check out this project I am shooting in the Middle East. Justin and I will be going to Beirut to shoot the hackerspace there and meet with different people in the community to share their stories. We will also go to Iraq to film the hackerspace/workshops there. I cannot stress enough, the importance of community building and hackerspaces/maker spaces everywhere, especially in the Middle East.
Spread the good word: Reblog, Tweet, Facebook, etc. <3
What is a Hackerspace?
A hackerspace or hackspace (also referred to as a hacklab, makerspace or creative space) is a location where people with common interests, often in computers, technology, science, digital or electronic art (but also in many other realms) can meet, socialise and/or collaborate. Hackerspaces can be viewed as open community labs incorporating elements of machine shops, workshops and/or studios where hackers can come together to share resources and knowledge to build and make things.
