Small Town, Big Ideas - The challenges of building a rural Makerspace

Talk by Matthew Macdonald-Wallace (He/Him)

Friday from 12:20 PM - 12:40 PM in Stage C

It turns out that building a Hackspace in a rural area is really hard. From the name of the group causing security concerns to finding a venue and members, a lot of the challenges that are presented in rural environments don't really seem to be present in the cities where hackspaces are most frequently found. In this talk, I'll go over the challenges I've faced in building a Hackspace in a rural town and hopefully show how others can avoid the same pitfalls!
