Topic: Banff: Grounding Open Source Hardware Summit (Read 616 times) previous topic - next topic


From July 16-18, The Banff New Media Institute at The Banff Centre will present the Grounding Open Source Hardware (GOSH!) Workshop and Summit. GOSH! will bring together makers, producers and theorizers of open source hardware to facilitate the emerging dialogue on both artist-driven and socially conscious open-source hardware. The breadth of open source hardware projects and distributed models of manufacturing suggest that it is time for these disparate manufacturers, designers, artists and engineers to come together to discuss the common issues of their practices.

GOSH! attendees will participate in the discussion of open source hardware development, and examine the past and future trajectory of Open Source Hardware. With over 30 invited speakers, GOSH! will aim to explore questions related to the free exchange of information, the application of OS to art, and the politics and possibilities of OSH.

A limited number of on-site registration packages, which include accommodation and a meal plan at The Banff Centre, are available. Registration deadline is July 5th.
