Plans are in motion to organise a city-wide DIY-o-rama here in Edinburgh, set for February 5th - 8th! It is to be a weekend of workshops, skillshares, gatherings, discussion, action and fun around the theme of DIY and direct action!
I was wondering what people would feel about using the Forest cafe as one of the main base points of the weekend? This would involve use of the cafe during days and evenings, using the spaces upstairs and down for workshops and discussions and hosting entertainments and shows, as well as providing a welcome space for people coming to Edinburgh from elsewhere, or just wanting to find out about the weekend?
I was directed onto the BB to ask this? I'd like it if people could let me know their feelings!
We have an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
and there is a forum for organising at diyedinburgh.freeforums.org
