Community Call: mAkE/GIG | Talk with Maker Residents (MiR)

July 24 @ 2:00 pm 4:00 pm

In this call we will have Asem Kamal (Egypt) and Witness Shangali (Tanzania) from the mAkE Africa EU Makers in Residency (MiR) program. Some of you might have already met  during the GIG week in Berlin or have come across their profile in the last nomination email!

The MiR program aims to provide valuable exchanges between European and African makers and makerspaces. This year, 4 African makers traveled to France, Belgium and Spain to experience the local makerspace culture and develop innovative prototypes with expert support. Asem and Witness are going to share insights about their experience, the makerspaces hosting them, the new skills acquired, and the prototypes that they have developed during their one month residency in Europe.
