Event Ideas

From CoMakingSpace Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Here we collect events that are either too far in the future, too complicated or too vague to plan right now. However, the basic ideas should not be lost and soon they just may become concrete enough to realize. Please add your ideas and let us know if you would like to help organize any of these!

Organize an Event

Organizing an event can be quite some work. Therefore, any help you can provide to the managers will be appreciated.
In order to support the scheduling and marketing of your event, please provide the following information to the managers (e.g. by sending an E-Mail to info [ät] comaking.space):

  • In German and English if your event will be bilingual:
  1. Title of your event
  2. Description of your event (written like if you would talk to a person attending)
  3. Prerequisites (e.g. a Laptop)
  • In either language
  1. Time needed
  2. Possible dates and times
  3. Image - e.g. a prototype you've already made, a screenshot or a kind of "flyer"

Once the managers agreed to your event and scheduled an appropriate timeslot, it needs to be advertised. For this, we have multiple possibilities:

  • To be done by the managers
  1. CoMakingSpace calendar
  2. Meetup
  3. Facebook
  4. Eventbrite (if there are tickets)
  5. Rhein-Neckar-Zeitung]
  6. Newsletter (if there is time)
  7. Instagram
  • Can be done by you
  1. Mailing List
  2. [Telegram Group]
  3. "Maker Community HD" WhatsApp Group
  4. Heidelberg.de
  5. Make: calendar
  6. If you have enough time: Poster (has to be ordered latest 6 weeks before the event!)
  7. Create a wiki page collecting information and material (Category:Seminars)
