Do-something days

Moving efforts - like the "offene Baustelle" calendar entries for renovating the new building, we will have many do-something events in the near future to make the rooms usable and ready for re-opening!

The two weekends after this plenum are especially important, we will have a truck to move our equipment over to Siemensstraße 40! Many helpers would be appreciated, details coming soon :-)

Management Change

Ciaran has stepped down as a manager as he has too many conflicting personal and professional priorities in the foreseeable future to invest the necessary time.

He was the driving force behind the foundation of an independent Makerspace in Heidelberg back in 2017 and even enabled us to pull it off financially, for which we'll always be grateful!

The management team has found a new volunteer in Martin, member for one and a half years and very actively contributing ever since :-)

Open Discussion

This is the place to talk about general improvements etc. - for example:

  • What did I do since the last plenum?
  • What am I planning to do until the next plenum?
  • What went wrong?
  • What went well?
  • What should get done at the space (new issues)?

Next Meeting

A Friday in January? -> 17.01.2020 (we're in the future!) at the new location
