E-waste is one of the biggest challenges of the digital age. Re-Making E-Waste is a week long event with designers, artists, creative writers and anyone interested in exploring solutions to e-waste to imagine and shape new lives for old electronic devices.
Re-Making E-Waste starts with a forum on March 16 where a group of experts will discuss the role of repair in tackling e-waste. The event includes three days of speculative repair workshops on March 17, 18, 19 where visitors are invited to participate in specific projects and introduced to four different techniques (mending, hacking, storytelling, subvertising) to complete them. The workshop closes on March 20 with a pop-up exhibition of all the projects completed in the workshops.
Re-Making E-Waste is organised by Juan Sanin, Melisa Duque, Mark Richardson, Brigid Magner, Scott Mitchell, Liam Fennessy and Ben Paul
